You might be wondering, what exactly is a barndominium house plan? While many sources (like this article from Architecture Lab) define it as a metal structure with living space, we use the term barndominium plan more broadly to include any home design that incorporates elements of traditional barn style, like a gambrel roof and barn doors. (Can't get enough of rustic style? Explore our collection of modern farmhouses here.)

This newly added, metal-framed barndominium plan boasts a vaulted open floor plan, an efficient mudroom with a built-in bench and easy access to the powder room and pantry, three bedrooms, a study/office, and outdoor living. Notice how each bedroom enjoys its own walk-in closet, including the primary suite which offers a walk-in closet big enough to house its own island. Other primary suite perks include: a safe room for security (or extra storage), a separate tub and shower (note the built-in shower seat), two sinks, access to the covered rear porch, and vaulted ceilings.
