The garage is tucked away at the rear end of the elongated unit, yet accessible enough for parking.
Before going through the entire process of building your barndominium, it is important to get a grasp of the general barn home information that would affect your construction and end-product standards. That said, we suggest reading the Ultimate Barndominium Guide for Starters for your preparation and learning.
