What Is A Barndominium And Should You Buy One?

A barndominium is a home style that is becoming extremely popular. The word comes from the combination of ‘barn’ and ‘condominium’. But they do not have the layout of a condominium and are stand alone homes. They are also easy to maintain and to build.

Here’s everything you need to know about barndominium’s.

Common Features

One thing about these homes is that they stand out. They have unique features that resemble a barn on the inside and exterior. Typically, a barndominium will have:

  • Wooden staircases
  • Barn doors inside and outside
  • 9-foot ceilings
  • Concrete slabs
  • Wrap-around porches

Since they are meant to resemble a barn, you may be hesitant to build one. But, they can be built to be modern and luxurious. You can also choose from various materials to make your barndominium last for decades.


A barndominium does not require a lot of maintenance. They tend to be made from metal, making them very durable. They are also on the cheaper end of the spectrum when it comes to building a home. Most of these homes will be energy-efficient due to energy-efficient windows, spray foam installations and other features that make it less expensive to heat and cool.

Once you build the home, it is also an easy process to make an addition. This is especially convenient if you do not want to sell and buy another home, but need some extra space.
