Our Story

After working in the construction and building materials industries for more than 10 years James Balmez started Midsouth Barndominiums, LLC in 2021 to meet the demand for DIY Barndominium style homes in middle TN and the surrounding area. We started our business near Summertown, TN but have since purchased a building in Hohenwald, TN which we now call home.
