Must Have Features of a Barndominium

I’ve thought about it, you’ve thought about it, we have all thought about packing up and moving into a barn-dominium at some point this year! Today’s your lucky day because we are diving into some “Must-Have Features of a Barndominium”. If you are new to the world of barn living, then let us introduce you. Barndominiums are a type of barn that is usually made out of metal but can be made from other material as well. These structures are then upgraded, finished, and furnished to serve as a comfortable home, at least for part of it. The other part of it is totally customizable to what you want. Have horses? Build on a stable. Have lots of wheeled toys? Build a garage. There are SO many possibilities, the world is actually your oyster when it comes to customizing your barndominium. As the years go by, barns with living quarters have actually grown to not only be an affordable housing alternative, but a very sound investment as well!

Barndominium homes not only look great, but they come with a ton of other benefits such as:

  • Easy additional income when rented as a short term rental or apartment space
  • Energy-efficient
  • Low maintenance
  • Live close to your animals or toys
  • Can be built quickly & affordably

Now let’s dive into some must-have features!

Built-in Dog Run

If you are looking for a way to keep your fluffy friends close, but also want to give some space to run around, then a built-in dog run is the feature for you! You can easily change this to a goat or chicken run as well and it would be just as amazing! We love seeing all the different ways these homes can turn into exactly what you want, without the cost of a traditional home.
