The trendy barndominium style evokes classic barns, but with living space. Although the term "barndominium" traditionally refers to a metal-framed building with living space, we take a more expansive view. That means that most of the plans in our collection have wood framing, but they still give you that great barndo look. Take a look at some of our favorite barndominium plans to inspire your next build!
This home’s simple footprint and no-fuss design keep things simple while still offering lots of luxurious features. A three-car garage fronts this home, creating lots of space for storing vehicles or extra belongings and creating an additional entrance to this home. Inside, a short hallway is surrounded by a mudroom, powder room, and primary bedroom, leading toward the main living zone. This area comprises a great room with a vaulted ceiling to open up the space, as well as a kitchen with a convenient center island. A close-by pantry helps keep your kitchen organized, while also keeping your favorite snacks within reach.
Upstairs, an expansive loft sits at the top of the stairs, creating lots of space for relaxing or hosting guests, just steps away from the second bedroom. This bedroom features an enormous walk-in closet and sits next to a bathroom with double sinks and linen storage. The washer and dryer are on this floor too, adding to this home’s convenience. This barndominium is made complete with lots of extra closets, outdoor living, and plenty of windows to help fill your space with natural light.
This 3,219-square-foot home features a wrap-around covered porch, garage space for two cars (plus a workshop!), and a balcony that overlooks the property, and we’re not even inside yet. The luxe home opens with a short foyer, with the open kitchen and dining space straight ahead. A center island helps break up the space and makes meal prep simple, too. Further into the space, the great room with a vaulted ceiling is perfect for relaxing or entertaining, with a built-in fireplace to make this space feel even cozier. Step out to the covered porch for hanging out with friends and family when the weather allows.
Around a corner, a study creates an ideal work-from-home space in the comfort of your home, while still providing plenty of privacy. The guest bedroom also sits on this level to offer guests a relaxing place to stay (complete with private access to the bathroom). This home can effortlessly be kept tidy with the mudroom that leads in from the garage and is conveniently attached to the laundry room.
Upstairs, the primary suite takes up most of the second floor, featuring a large bedroom with access to the balcony, a walk-in closet fit for two, and a bathroom with double sinks and a separate bathtub and shower. A second bedroom is located adjacent to the primary and includes its own closet and balcony access. Residents of this room can enjoy a full bathroom across the hallway, which creates a convenient space to prepare for the day ahead or a night of restful sleep.

From the outside, this home truly resembles a classic barn, with brick-colored siding and eye-catching doors on the enormous "car barn." This space includes car storage, a separate RV storage space, and access to an optional upstairs studio via a short flight of stairs. The studio features a large bedroom with an attached kitchenette, as well as a full bathroom and walk-in closet. This space would be ideal for out-of-town or long-term guests, or older children living at home. With privacy and convenience paramount, this loft apartment is the perfect addition to your property.
Just a few steps away, the main house provides all of the comforts of home, with a combined great room and dining room opening the space. The kitchen sits directly to the right, with a large center island for gathering with friends and family. A close-by pantry keeps all of your favorite ingredients within reach, while the home’s porches (both covered and screened) provide more entertaining space outdoors. To the right of the kitchen, the laundry room is easily accessible, with a door separating it from the primary suite. This suite includes a large bedroom, bathroom with double sinks and a private toilet closet, and a sizable walk-in closet. An additional powder room is perfect for freshening up during the day, too.
On the home’s lower level, relaxation is a priority with two more bedrooms with their own walk-in closets and full bathrooms, giving guests or kids their own private spaces to unwind. Between these two bedrooms, a recreation room is ideal for enjoying a movie or entertaining guests, with a wet bar that makes preparing snacks or drinks a breeze. This level is made complete with a patio and outside storage area, as well as a safe room.
With five bedrooms and over 3,200 square feet of living space spread across one convenient floor, this barndominium epitomizes country-inspired luxury. Beyond the front door and covered porch, this space opens with a great room that flows into the dining room and kitchen. A pass-through fireplace will draw all eyes and adds a cozy touch.
From the garage side, a short foyer leads through the mudroom, which allows you to dump shoes and bags after a long day, and even wash your dog! A sliding door connects the mudroom to the primary bedroom's closet; a sizable space that serves as the perfect place to store all of your favorite outfits. We also love this suite's luxurious bathroom with a freestanding tub.
Across the home, four more bedrooms are situated in a square shape, with a kids’ living room in the middle to let little ones enjoy their own relaxation space. Two full bathrooms are shared between the four bedrooms and each includes two sinks to give everyone their own space to get ready for the day. The home is made complete with a pantry and powder room, two smart details that make this home especially convenient.
