Who really understands how to properly waterproof a post-frame building. Another potential con could be the difficulty in securing a mortgage for a post-frame home, as there's no secondary market for these mortgages. This means banks can't easily resell the mortgages, so you might need to find a bank willing to offer an in-house loan or be prepared to finance the construction with cash.

Resale value could also be a consideration. While post-frame homes are gaining popularity and knowledge about them is increasing, there may still be some apprehension from buyers and lenders due to the lack of historical data on these types of homes. However, if you plan to stay in your home long-term like I do, resale value may not be a significant concern.

In summary, post-frame construction offers many advantages, including cost savings, fast construction, and low maintenance. However, it's essential to research and consider factors such as local building codes, financing options, and resale potential before deciding if post-frame construction is right for you.
