Welcome to Barnhouse Custom Homes

Barnhouse Hero


Your home should tell a story

Barnhouse Custom Homes is a family-owned and operated design + build company serving the greater Kansas City area. Primarily focused on new construction, we create everything from traditional stick-built or modified timber frame homes to pre-engineered steel or pole barn structures.

We dismantle century-old barns and reclaim their wood to create beautiful, functional and sustainable designs, stamped by time.

We take pride in building on the past.

Building is a journey, enjoy the ride

As a full-service bespoke home builder, we guide our clients from the design process through project completion. Like with any true partnership, we place the utmost importance on honesty and open communication. We operate on a transparent cost + basis.

Our homes are hand-built by professional artisans who are passionate about their craft.

    Reclaimed Timbers


    The reclaimed timbers are graded, washed, and treated before they are installed in their new home. Each distinctive nick, nailhole and crack reveals a glimpse into its former life.
