Build the Shop House of Your Dreams

We are shouse experts, enthusiasts, and fanatics. We built our shouse (shop house) two years ago and started this website to help you do the same thing.

A Shouse is a building that contains both residential and workshop areas, all under one roof. You might hear them referred to as a barndominium, shed home, barn house, pole barn house, Morton building, or metal building home. If you’re tired of not having enough room for your 4-wheeler, side-by-side, classic car, or bike but don’t have the budget for a whole separate garage, a Shouse might be just what you’re looking for.

Shouses are a relatively new style of home. There tend to be tons of questions, so we’ve put together an FAQ section to help.
