This 2-story classic loft barndo is a residence to see for active and busy working individuals. You can have your own office just next to your master suite with this plan! Aside from the home office, this home’s pride is its airy 16-foot living room and its 2-car garage that can accommodate RV-size vehicles.

Now starting, this simple barndo charms its humble barn-style frontage with a high gable roof, concealing its 2-story interior. Its exterior is protected with corrugated siding panels and made fancy with stone wainscot.
Going inside, you will get through the shaded porch, then the entry door will lead you to a heated double-height living room. It has ample space for your lounging furniture as well as a dining table. To the entry’s left is the barndo’s formal kitchen furnished with an L-type + island counter, and a pantry with built-in cupboards.

Adjacent to the pantry is the hallway to the common toilet, the mudroom with laundry area, and the home office. The office has a 12 by 10 ft. floor area where you can comfortably work, far from distractions from the living room. It could house your standard office desk and filing cabinets.
If you are working from home and don’t want to walk far as soon as you get up, don’t worry! The master bedroom is just next door, provided with an en-suite bathroom and enclosed walk-in closet.
Two more quarters are situated up the loft, with both 16 by 12 ft. floor space. A common toilet and bath are available for occupants right outside their rooms. The loft has an open view of the living room and is spacious enough for some recliners and entertainment.
Now moving onto the garage, you can take in your hobby equipment without worrying about your parking space. It has a wide parking slot for two large cars and offers more room for your auto gear.
Considering it all, this plan could build a productive home setup for a family with busy adults, especially for those with virtual and work-from-home careers. It would be great to picture a work-life balanced lifestyle while living in this simple abode. Check your house space needs now and consider getting this plan!
Note: this home may be constructed using metal framing; however, you should always consult your local architect-engineer and receive a professional evaluation if such an option is feasible for this plan and your local building codes.
