What is a Barndominium?

A barndominium is a type of residential building that combines the practicality of a barn with the comfort and livability of a modern home. Its most distinctive feature is the weight-bearing posts located on the exterior walls. This allows for an open concept, and a customizable indoor living space that is both functional and inviting.

Barndominiums are also known for their higher wind resistance than traditional stick-built homes, as well as their low maintenance exterior materials. With the ability to renovate or add square footage in the future, a barndominium is a versatile and flexible living option. Plus, its unique design allows for a seamless flow from the living area to the workshop without being exposed to the weather. Whether you’re looking for a spacious family home or a functional workspace, a barndominium can offer the best of both worlds.

Barndominium Ideas

A wide variety of ideas can help transform interiors and exteriors of Barndominium into a homely feeling.

Covered Balcony

The best part about creating your own Barndominium is that you can pick the floor plan, along with any external design ideas. The idea of adding a covered balcony is great that you might not have access to with a conventional home.

Covered Porch

When considering a custom house, everyone dreams of having a place to unwind outside that is shielded from the sun, rain, and other unfavorable weather conditions.

Possibly the most effective way to do this is to construct a covered patio around your Barndominium. This provides you with a ton of room to set up furniture like tables, chairs, and even hammocks.

How To Pick A Floor Plan For A Barndominium?

There are several options available when selecting the ideal flooring and floor layout for Barndominiums. There are numerous factors to think about as you construct your ideal Barndominium, including the price, the floor layouts, and the kind of flooring.


Having the ideal amount of room is crucial when you plan and construct your Barndominium. Make sure your home has adequate room for everyone who will be residing there, including family members, children, and pets.


Many aspiring homeowners give more focus to appearance and aesthetics. Even if you want your home to have a lovely appearance, its utility is just as important to your daily life. Your Barndominium floor designs should make sure to leave enough space for furnishings and storage.


Before choosing your flooring, it’s important to consider your family’s lifestyle, especially if you have children and pets. It’s a good idea to select flooring that is strong and simple to clean if your children and family live an extremely active lifestyle.


Because flooring is an investment, it’s important to pick a material that will look excellent over time.


Always keep in mind the flooring you are thinking about meet maintenance requirements. Consider whether you’ll need to refinish the tiles in ten years or whether you’ll need to periodically polish and reseal them.

How Much Does It Cost To Build A Barndominium?

Although post-frame barndominiums are less expensive than typical stick frame homes, you may not be saving as much as you read online. One good rule of thumb is that the overall SAVING you get from building a barndo is about 10-15% LESS thank a standard home.

Most of the cost savings is found in the shell of your building. Meaning, the framing, exterior finish, concrete footing, etc, are significantly less than a standard stick frame home. At the same time, the cost to finish the interior is basically the same as a standard home. For example, the cost for carpet, cabinets, tile, finish trim, etc. are the same regardless how the exterior of the home is constructed.

The price of constructing a Barndominium depends on a variety of things.

The Labor and Assembling

A barndominium’s construction and installation require both material and labor services. Some people attempt to install it themselves, but employing labor saves time and results in better completion.

Other Utilities

Additional costs are associated with the approval and installation of the gas, electricity, and water drainage systems. A well, an electric hookup, and a septic system can easily add tens of thousands of dollars to the cost.

An Authentic Builder

If you believe that constructing a barndominium is similar to puttingtogether a sizable puzzle, you are mistaken. Instead, it calls for meticulous work and excellence; otherwise, you’ll have a house that costs a lot to maintain and needs constant upkeep.
