The idea behind a shouse (shop+house) is that it includes a workshop or large workstation linked to the living area. The workshop of over 3000 sq. ft. isn’t a standalone structure. It is linked to the property, making it easy to move from the family room to the workspace as needed.
The garage/shop can be adapted into a gymnasium, artist’s studios, automobile exhibition, game area, dancing training, and so on. It has double height, giving an extensive look. The top windows never fail to lighten up the entire garage.
The addition of a screened porch to the floor concept is fantastic. It leads to the upper floor. When the resident isn’t operating in the garage, he or she may rest without being bothered by the climate. A hammock and a few picnic tables will provide the necessary comfort for the home. It could also be used as a waiting room. If you are still confused about what exactly a barndominium is, this simple guide will help you in understanding this house’s design features more.
