Barndominium Kits

You’ve heard of the Man Cave, and you’ve heard of the She Shed, but have you heard of the Barndo? Barndominiums (aka barndos) are barn homes, essentially, and they’re the latest trend in custom buildings. Think the next iteration of the modern farmhouse that was so popular in the 2010s. Could a barn-style dwelling be your next dream home? 

More and more homebuyers are turning toward barndominium life – and for good reason. Barndominiums are a perfect mix of living quarters and recreation space – all within an affordable, low-maintenance, energy-efficient metal building. Popular in rural settings, out on a Texas ranch, or even just outside suburbia, these low-cost metal buildings give people the flexibility they need to live, play and work all under one roof.

Barndominium home plans can be designed to incorporate a home with a workshop, large garage, bonus room, barn, horse stalls, airplane hangar, and more. Best of all, they’re the perfect structure to design with one of Worldwide Steel’s steel building kits. 

Forget everything you thought you knew about metal barns: Let Worldwide Steel show you how your plans for a new home could turn into a dream barndominium. 

Cost Savings over Conventional Construction

You could buy a pre-built barndominium, sure. But why would you want to? A DIY version, especially when it comes from Worldwide Steel, means you can design and build a home exactly as you want it, right from the beginning. No haggling with contractors, no arguing over specs, and no redoing what the last owner wanted done, and with far more customization options than you ever thought possible. Plus, designing and building from scratch can actually be more cost-effective than buying a pre-designed barndo, and our steel frame construction will outperform a traditional home over the years.

Worldwide Steel barndominiums can be designed however you’d like, with open concept living space that can be finished to your exact specifications. That means you can truly design the house plans of your dreams, and at a reduced average cost compared to traditional home construction. 

But the benefits don’t stop at build-out. In fact, they really start after you move in. Here are just a few: 

  • Steel barndominiums can be more energy efficient than conventional wood frame construction
  • Steel exteriors have less maintenance cost and upkeep over the life of the building
  • The increased durability of our building materials means the potential for better insurance rates
  • Steel is easier to repair than wood, resulting in reduced lifetime repair costs

Everything You Need Delivered in a Kit

Worldwide has designed their metal barndominium kits to be DIY friendly. Don’t think you’re barndominium builders? We make it easy! Each barndominium kit comes with a simple assembly manual, and we have expert staff on hand to answer any questions that come up during the process of building your barn house.

Our standard steel frame kits include everything you need to build your home. Err … barn. That means all main framing, secondary framing (for all steel), exterior sheeting, trim, closures, fasteners and stamped building plans. These packages can be added to with second floors, vaulted ceilings, overhangs, wrap-around porches, etc., or reduced if you want to do your own exterior material of a different roofing material. Put them all together and voila! You’re homeowners of your very own barndominium. 

Barndominium Floor Plans

With our barndominium kits, you can design flexible, custom floor plans that incorporate residential living quarters and recreation. Everything about our metal building kits is meant to be truly DIY (including the floor plan design process), but we don’t leave you alone when it comes to barndominium plans. We know most of our customers don’t have the experience we do, and we’re here to partner with you. Our experts walk you through everything you need to know when it comes to these low-maintenance metal building homes, from how many sq ft you need to where the countertops should be installed. 

Your barndominium home can be designed to just about any specification you want, so floor plan options are nearly endless. Because barndominium floor plans require no interior structural walls (yay for extra square footage), you can choose anything from an entirely open floor plan (imagine a great room that comfortably fits your extended family) to more, smaller rooms for increased privacy.

Supported by clearspan framing and built with the same high-quality materials as all of our other metal buildings, our barndominiums allow you the option to completely customize the interior floor plan of the home. With no load bearing walls within the floor plan, you’re free to design room layouts and living quarters any way you want. 

When it comes to deliverables, we’ll work with you to create preliminary drawings, steel column placement, elevation blueprints, basic foundation details, floor plan layouts and electrical plans: everything you’ll need for initial construction and for posterity.

Barndominium Design Options

Open concept living and dining area in barndominium.

A DIY barndominium is a virtual blank canvas when it comes to design possibilities. That means the options for incorporating living areas and play areas into your house plans are almost endless.

Often, barndominium owners choose to design their new home in a farmhouse style, with interior finishes that incorporate reclaimed timber and other rustic materials. This makes the living space feel cozy, comfortable, and customized.

However, barndos offer the luxury of complete customization. Because they don’t require interior support or load-bearing walls, the interior of a barndo could be designed to look sleek, modern and spacious (consider the possibility of vaulted ceilings, bright white painted drywall, marble countertops and high-end appliances — wow!)
