Advantages of inhabiting a barndominium, often shortened to barndo, include faster construction, greater cost-effectiveness in comparison to regular homes, more convenient floor plans and animal-monitoring abilities. Barndominiums include living areas, stables, tack rooms and workshops all under one roof.
Many barndominium owners were initially in search of a weekend getaway location but enjoyed the ease of living and environment and converted to barndominium living full time. Owner's enjoy the ability to hear their horses from inside the home. In addition, many enjoy the large, functional work spaces these designs have to offer but relish the peaceful surroundings in contrast to city living.
