Barndominiums have recently gained popularity as an excellent option for customizing an existing barn for family living or using a stock plan to build a metal barn and customize it to your needs. They can be a good, cost-effective alternative to a traditional house while still offering the same amenities and utilizing every square foot of space. The possibilities are endless when you consider all the ways to personalize the open layout, such as making it a two-story home, designing an inviting great room, and even crafting the perfect master suite.

The exterior appearance of the barn home plans in this collection draws inspiration from a typical barn structure. They often include a gambrel roof, barn doors, outdoor living spaces, and lots of windows. This style continues gaining popularity, along with its counterpart, the barndominium. Barndominium floor plans are similar structures that resemble a pole barn and are designed as living spaces but include barn-like storage and working spaces.

As architecture shifts into more modern styles – with geometric lines and a minimalist appeal – more homeowners seek to hold onto the rustic charm and warmth of older architectural styles like barn-inspired house plans. Some of this collection's plans combine traditional and modern features, creating a modern farmhouse feel.  Barndominium life typically provides an open floor plan and all of the features you’re find in any other home but with varied functionality of the square footage that you might not expect.

View our collection below for those looking for a warm home with timeless appeal.

 

Features of a Barn Style Home

A barn house's features make these home designs highly desirable. These common details include:

  • Exposed timber beams
  • Gambrel roof
  • A front porch/ wrap-around porch
  • Shiplap – either inside the home or used as house siding
  • Open concept floor plan
  • Barn doors
  • Laundry/mud room
  • Vaulted ceilings
  • Living area on the second floor

 

What are Some of the Benefits of a Barndominium?

Barndominiums, also known as barndos, have similar features and square footage as a traditional home, while also including a work or shop area along with the living quarters. They are often metal buildings, but there are plenty of options that use more traditional building materials. Adding a covered porch or patio, a deck, an outdoor kitchen, or another type of outdoor entertaining space is a great way to personalize your dream barndominium.

Though these styles are similar to the farmhouse style category, their exteriors and interiors vary greatly.

If you’re looking for a place with a rustic feel, a barn style house plan could be for you. Everything from small barn plans with a quaint, almost cottage feel to sprawling country homes are in this collection. Our support team is available to answer any questions you may have about your next dream home.

But much has changed since barn conversions first emerged on the scene. Today, barn style homes have become part of the mainstream architectural landscape.  Whe
