What is a Barndominium?

What’s a barndominium? That is a great question. You have probably been hearing about them a lot lately. They are super popular and the biggest buzz word in construction right now. The barndominium is extremely popular in Texas that and made its way up into the Midwest. It is one part barn and one part condominium. It’s built to look like a barn but has all the amenities of a home. It is also referred to as a “barn home” or “shouse.”

Barndominiums can be made with steel frames or wooden frames, and are designed with an open floor plan and you can add barn like features such as sliding barn doors, rustic wooden staircases, and large ceiling beams. Barn homes are typically built as a vacation homes or weekend retreat, but being built as a families main home has become much more popular recently.

Barndominium Floor Plans

When building a barn home, it is important to choose the perfect layout for you and your family that will suit all your needs. Decide how many rooms you will want in your barndominium, as well as how many bathrooms you will need. If you want to build a multi-level barn with living quarters, decide which rooms you want upstairs. Many barn homes feature an open loft that can serve as an office or living area

As for the kitchen, living room, and dining area, barndominium floor plans typically combine these three spaces in one large, open area. This way your family can interact with each other no matter where you are in your house, but still have the privacy of a bathroom, bedroom, or office space in other areas of your barn home.

A Better Barn Company can help you develop your very own custom barndominium floor plan to meet all your needs. We partner with you every step of the way to build your dream barndominium.
