Barndominiums: What you need to know

View descriptionShare

Hello! This is Episode 275, and in it, I’m going to be talking about Barndominiums. A barndominium is a type of residential structure that design-wise, combines the features of a barn and a condominium.

This is a type of building that’s been around for a while, and is more popular as a name in the US than other locations. However lately, it’s been cropping up on my radar a lot more frequently, and in Australia too, so I thought I’d spend a little bit of time on the podcast sharing more about them, and what to be aware of.

What is a Barndominium? 

What it looks like is generally an open plan building with residential spaces in it, and also incorporating work spaces such as sheds, workrooms and the like. The aesthetic style will be barn-like in appearance, and have features such as exposed beams, metal roofs, and industrial-style finishes that are typically found in a barn. 

There’s more to this though, which I’ll discuss in this podcast.

So, let’s learn a bit more about Barndominiums, and what to be aware of when considering this approach for your project, whether renovating an existing barn or shed, or building a new home in this style.
