• What is a Barndominium?
  • Back

If that big word confuses you, then good, it confuses a lot of people! Well it’s a mashup of the words barn and condominium. The buildings are traditionally made of steel, and most of them were originally barns or storage areas for farms. Over time, they were adapted to house living areas and people, leading to their mashup name.

If you want a picture of what this looks like, then walk into a garage or storage area, mentally clear out or organize all the junk, and imagine yourself living there. Ironically once you clean out the space in your head, you’ll find that most garages have pretty good floor space. The same thing happens with barns, where there’s a lot of open areas that can easily be adapted to modern living.
