Sweet Southern Grace's Barndominium Details

Sweet Southern Grace's Barndominium Details

Sweet Southern Grace is an Instagram account and blog Shae Roberts and her husband created to follow their current self-build barndominium. They recently installed Ageless Iron Grips and Entry Sets in the barndo, a feat that was one of the finishing touches before they wrap up the project in 2024.
Please give us some more details on Sweet Southern Grace. How did you develop it, and what sets it apart?

I developed Sweet Southern Grace as an outlet to share our DIYs. My husband and I are up for any DIY, including our current self-built barndominium.

We would love to hear more about your current building project!

We are in the process of self-building our home. The build as a whole has been challenging, as we literally started from the ground up. We cleared the land ourselves and began our barndo build while living in our camper for almost a year. We moved into the unfinished barndo and lived there during construction - it is scheduled to be completed in 2024.

How did you choose the hardware featured in this project? What attracted you to Ageless Iron Hardware?

We chose the hardware based on the design aspects of our barndo. We wanted rustic, modern, industrial-style hardware, and we appreciate the quality and hand-poured iron.

Will you use this hardware again in other projects/areas of your home?

Rustic and refined hardware, yes, please! We love the design qualities and how well it is made.

What is your design style, and how do you incorporate those decorating decisions within your home?

Our design style is modern farmhouse. We love rustic and refined, industrial and modern, with a touch of antiques we’ve acquired from our grandparents throughout the years. We want to come into our home and feel the nostalgia and love of seeing pieces that reflect our family histories.

How did/do you choose a house to buy and renovate?

In 2020, we decided to put our newly remodeled home up for sale; it sold immediately. We used that money to self-build our own barndominium. Our financial freedom from paying cash for our self-build has been one of the best outcomes.

Many people want to take on large remodeling projects. What are some recommendations for readers who wish to do an extensive remodel project?

Budget for more expenses because things always come up that you aren’t expecting. For example, we built during COVID-19, so pricing increased significantly, and supplies were hard to find. Also, it helps to have plenty of patience.

What are some tips for readers who wish to make a transformation in their home?

Do what makes you and your family happy. You are the one living in your home every day, and you need to like it. Plain and simple.

Are you working on any other properties or projects besides your own home?

Some day, we would like to build a tiny home community and work with community members in need.

We can't wait to see the completed barndo! Thanks to Shae for sharing!
