Jumpstart Your Day: Make Way for Barndominiums

You’d want one after seeing photos and reading about this latest trend


Barn + Condominium? You might think that this is such an odd combo and we won’t disagree. After all, how can you combine the elements of a space known for housing animals, grain, and farm equipment with that of comfy and high-rise living? Thanks to the wonders of architecture and design, barndominiums came about and they are here to stay. These unique homes are popular on Pinterest, too!

After the rise of man caves, she sheds, and shipping container homes, we thought we’ve seen it all, but given this latest real estate trend, we can only look forward to the next innovation in terms of living spaces. The barndominium is how you’d expect it to be—a metal barn converted into a cozy and livable space. Aside from renovating an existing barn, homeowners can also build one from the ground up. According to UMAXPC, these homes are gaining popularity since these are easier to maintain, energy-efficient, and highlight a shorter construction time compared to most homes.

HGTV’s popular show Fixer Upper featured the Meek House—a horse barn that was transformed into a spacious and inviting barndominium. Since the owners wanted a functional and practical home, Chip and Joanna Gaines, hosts and owner of Magnolia Homes—a remodeling and design business, worked on the layout, planning, and overall look of the house.

Whether you’re planning to build your own barndominium or simply looking for pegs for your home, here are our favorites from Pinterest:

Aside from the fantastic exterior and pop of color, this home features a wraparound porch! You can roam around the house and pick a perfect spot where you can relax and take a break.

Visitors may take it as a regular home with unique doors but it's actually a fancy bard. The facade and wooden touches give it a country vibe that you would love to come home to.

If you love rustic-inspired homes, you can incorporate it into the barndominium too! Choose bricks for the walls and furniture with weathered and distressed finishes to complete the look. Even if you have a limited area to work with, you can still have a loft that can be turned into a sleeping space or home office.
