Barden Independent Custom Home Dealers Resource Center

Barden Independent Dealers are some of the most important members of the Barden Building Products family. 

While independently owned and operated, our custom home dealers represent the Barden brand and our long tradition in the custom home building industry. More importantly, Barden Independent Dealers work with clients to develop and build homes they’ll fall in love with every time they pull in their driveways


The Role of a Barden Independent Dealer

A Barden Independent Dealer is a client’s partner on a Barden custom home project. 

From Day 1, an independent dealer helps the client realize their next home, working with them from conceptualization and design to managing or completing construction. 

Barden Independent Dealers support a client through each step of building their custom, panelized home, providing expertise and guidance through each milestone.


What an Independent Dealer Does:

  • Assist with design
  • Match budget with anticipated costs
  • Help with site selection
  • Obtain the appropriate permits
  • Evaluate financing options 
  • Coordinate deliveries
  • Manage subcontracts

The Barden panelized construction method is designed to make designing and building a home efficient. Dig into what our custom home construction process looks like:
