San Antonio: Rising Barn cozy in micro-unit developmentsSan Antonio: Rising Barn cozy in micro-unit developmentshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=118582016-01-25T06:00:00Z2016-01-25T20:00:00Z

​SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio-based startup Rising Barn wants potential homeowners to think small. Really small.

The fledgling company is putting its own spin on custom home building by combing two hot-topic trends — do-it-yourself and micro units — to add a unique type of single-family housing to San Antonio's residential market.

Similar to any type of custom home building, a buyer will secure their own homesite and go through a catalogue of options for the type of home they want to build on said site.

Rather than the three-bedroom, two-bathroom floor plans with a den and two-car garage, Rising Barn's floorplans range between 200 to 800 sf. For turnkey developments, which include the cost of materials and labor, unit pricing ranges between $120 per sf to $200 per sf, dependent upon the quality of finishes a buyer chooses.

But if that buyer wants to build their house with their own two hands, Rising Barn sells them a homebuilding kit, so to speak, and the homeowner can keep costs between $90 to $105 per sf.
