Barn Home Designs

Originally used to house livestock and feed, barns are being reclaimed as habitats and recreational retreats for humans.  What was once considered a utilitarian farm building is now prized for its hand crafted beauty and structural integrity.  Solid
timber-frame construction features lofty interiors with exposed posts and beams.  Spacious floor plans are warmed by the natural beauty of wood -- often centuries in the making.

A charming 2-story barn (below) now functions as a game room and entertainment center for a family in Darien, Connecticut.  Reconstructed by architect Sean O'Kane and E. M. Rose Builders, it features a fieldstone fireplace and chimney addition.  A 3-car garage and mudroom occupy the lower level.

If the prospect of taking on a barn home conversion is a bit too daunting, additional options are available.  Thanks to a resurgence in popularity of this iconic, but rapidly disappearing building type, a new industry has evolved to meet the increasing demand for barn style homes.    Designers, builders and manufacturers are expanding their services and product lines to give barn home enthusiasts more choices than ever before!

Barn home kits provide another option for those in search of a farm-style retreat.  Many can be customized to the buyer's specifications.  The prefabricated "Ponderosa Country Barn Home" from Sand Creek Post & Beam -- shown here with a custom wraparound porch, shed roof dormers and a distinctive widow's peak -- is 22x24 feet in size.
