Barndo Building Process

Stacey and her family chose a simple bungalow barndominium as their home. They planned and constructed this house with the assistance of Kimich Construction, their trusted contractor.

The house has a 35 x 80 ft. floor area, enough to take in 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, and covered carports. It was built within a year, costing them $447,000 in total. The main residence has a matching detached shop covering 2,500 sq. ft. of space. It also serves as the parking bay for their boat and RV, and a stash for their hobby equipment.

Stacey’s Barndominium Exterior – Warm and Sheer Gray Country Barndo

The exterior screams neutral and warm shades of gray, leaving a natural appeal that blends well with the earthy surroundings. The owners made an excellent choice pairing the shop’s facade with the main house while maintaining a distinction between the two units. They incorporated texture elements, such as stonecraft base wainscot, to differentiate between the two units. Both structures are conveniently placed and coordinated for the occupants’ ease.
