Economical Metal-Framed Barndominium w/ 2-Car Garage (HQ Plans & 3D Concepts)

Timber prices are reaching for the sky in 2022. To save the headache, this modern 3-bedroom farmhouse features an alternative metal frame design. However, it can also be upgraded with 2×6 traditional wooden framing. The structure is designed to be constructed utilizing the ‘bolt-up’ metal building technique. Bolt-up structures are prefabricated at the manufacturer site, making them quick and easy to install on the building site. It cuts down the costs and time frame without compromising durability and flexibility.

The massive verandah is adorned with rough sawn cedarwood, making the facade aesthetically pleasing as well as a perfect place to share tea with loved ones. Entering the house, a spacious foyer acts as a buffer space for the private areas of the house. From there, explore a warm and cozy living room with a typical country-style open kitchen highlighted by stone cladding. The fireplace in the living area is enough to warm the house during chilly winter days.

Looking up, the vaulted ceiling gives a rustic magnificence without losing a homey feeling. The large covered porch adjacent to the living room also works like a charm to host barbeque parties and as a haven for bigger crowds. If you are still unsure about barndominiums, this guide for designing a Bardominium will help you understand this trendy house design features more.

The porch is connected with the master bedroom with a walk-in closet, a lavish bathroom that includes a bathtub, and a secret chamber to keep highly-priced belongings and documents safe. The other two bedrooms are ideal for children or youth, styled with a Jack-and-Jill bathroom between the two rooms. It also has separate dressing rooms to maintain privacy. The inside walls are reinforced with 2×4 studs, but metal studs can simply be installed instead.

The 2 car garage is huge as it accommodates a mudroom for dirty shoes and backpacks, a pantry and powder room for day-to-day use, and a laundry room to avoid machines hogging up the kitchen space. 

The separate study room near the foyer can be converted into an office room. It will help to nullify the distractions in the room. Also, none of the home’s windows cross sightlines with each other, helping to maintain privacy for everyone. 

There are several advantages to evaluate for this floor plan, ranging from room & scale to affordability & convenience; but overall, the house is an excellent choice for a compact family who wants all the facilities in one place. If that sounds like your needs, order this plan today!
