Barn-dominium Living

The traditional way to build homes is slowly becoming inefficient. Taking a look at modular homes, it simply makes more sense to prefabricate a home in the shop and move it to the site. This will allow the home to be built faster and more efficiently while also being much cheaper in the process. And, this goes well beyond the normal modular home you’ll see. In 2016, it was predicted that the barndominium will be one of the hottest ways to own a new home. In hindsight, this was spot on. That trend continued for 2017 and now in 2018, we are sure you have heard about this style of home.


Wikipedia defines a Bardominium:

Barndominium is a neologistic portmanteau of barn and condominium with multiple meanings.

One definition refers to a type of steel building. This usage refers to a non-traditional structure, with a steel frame and sheet metal siding, originally designed as a storage building or barn structure that has been repurposed by the addition of living areas to previously open space. This type of building is typically built on an existing property or multi-acre homesite and the structure often acts as a dual purpose living and shop or work and storage areas large enough for things as large as boats and recreational vehicles.

The term has also been used for wood-framed structures, and is often used interchangeably with terms like "barn home" and "barn with living quarters",[1] for newer buildings in the tradition of bastles, housebarns and connected farms.

A barndominium can be a full-fledged home that has several rooms and bathrooms included. But, you may also choose to have an open floor layout or use your new living space for a variety of different functions:

  • Shop

  • Garage

  • Church

  • Meeting center

  • Entertainment area

And, if you’re worried that your home will not have all of the luxuries that you’re used to, you definitely haven’t researched this type of home enough. You can have virtually anything you want in your home, including:

  • Air-conditioning units

  • Hardwood floors

  • Granite countertops

  • Ceiling fans

  • Hot tubs and showers

Virtually anything you can think of that you would want in a traditionally built home will be available within a barndominium.
