Barndominium Plans, Kits, & Pricing

When you drive past a barn, you might assume hay and horses are inside. Trucks and other machinery could be in there as well. You probably wouldn’t expect to see people living in that barn—but maybe you should.

Homeowners all over the country, especially in the Southwest, are converting barns into fully-fledged residences called “barndominiums,” affordable and versatile buildings that can function as living spaces and storage solutions at once. You can quickly and easily build your own barndominium home with a pole kit from Hansen Pole Buildings. Read on to learn more about our custom pole kits and why barndominiums could be an excellent option for your next residence.

What Is a Barndominium?

As you’ve no doubt guessed, “barndominium” is a portmanteau combining the words “barn” and “condominium.” Some people make barndominiums their primary home, designing them with all of the fixtures and luxuries necessary to live comfortably year-round, while others use them as hunting lodges, lake houses, or other types of weekend getaway spots.

Depending on your barndominium’s floor plan, it can be more than a residence as well. Some barndominium builders prefer to concentrate the living quarters in a loft on the top floor and leave the bottom open as a large storage area for cars or equipment. Others design barndominium plans that combine their homes with offices, workshops, and art studios.

How Much Does It Cost to Build a Barndominium?

No two barndominium pole kits are the same, so prices are different for each building as well. Size is the primary factor in determining the cost of a barndominium pole barn—average pole buildings range from $4000 to $50,000, while especially large buildings go as high as $100,000. Customizations, local zoning requirements, and the cost of materials in your region will influence your final cost as well.

Whatever the price of your customized barndominium kit, building a pole barn is one of the most cost-effective ways to purchase a residence. The light materials and simple construction process will save you thousands on the materials and labor costs associated with building a new house from scratch.

Customize Your Barndominium

When you order a pole barn kit from Hansen Pole Buildings, it’s easy to make your barndominium everything you want it to be. You’ll start by choosing the size and your ideal floor plan, determining whether your barndominium will be a full luxury home, part workshop, a loft with storage space, or anything else you can think of. You’ll have your choice of several different materials as well.

Once you’ve determined the basic layout of your custom pole building, you can make your barndominium even more personalized by adding features and your own sense of style. Design your barndominium with decorative windows or sliding doors, choose concrete or hardwood for the floors, add overhangs and wainscoting, or pick colors for your siding and trim that fit in with other homes in your neighborhood (or stand out, if you prefer).
