In Season 3 of the HGTV show Fixer Upper, duo Chip & Joanna Gaines remodeled a barndominium, or “barndo.” And – as with anything Chip and Jo touch, it turned to gold. The trend grew in popularity. Now barndominiums are sweeping the nation, including right here in Columbus and Central Ohio.
What is a barndominium?
A barndominium is exactly what it sounds like. It’s the combo of a barn and condominium. It’s not an old barn refurb, however. It’s typically a new barn build that has a living space inside. Often they’re made of metal for extra durability. You can even find a barndominium kit online and have it shipped to you for assembly.
According to Metal Building Homes, a company that specializes in new-construction barndominiums:
“These are metal buildings that have an inside living quarter.” In fact, barndominiums are often very affordable. And many include energy-efficient features, like highly insulated windows, customizable concrete floors, spray foam insulation, and efficient plumbing. “Think of a warehouse that has a beautiful front porch and a little masonry in the front of the building. A warehouse on the outside is normally boring and plain, but as houses, these are very affordable to make. This is the same concept, but when you own a barn home, you’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful, low-cost home that has had the exterior upgraded greatly from what a warehouse would look like.”
