Barndominiums: Solutions for Modern Problems, Inspired by Historic Design

Join Stacee Lynn – The Barndominium Lady® – and Oliver Bell as they delve into the evolution of barn design, now known as Barndominiums.  These bold, clear span structures have revolutionized the market by merging proven commercial steel construction techniques with high end, luxury residential design.  This trend offers homeowners new ways to perceive and utilize spaces, focusing on multi-generational / extended family living, family compounds, and functional spaces.

Barndominiums, whether steel or wood-framed, are often characterized by oversized great rooms with high vaulted ceilings, larger bedrooms, flex rooms, hidden rooms, and unique multipurpose rooms. Coupled with exceptional outdoor living and entertainment options tailored for family comfort and functionality, Barndominiums may just be the perfect home solution.  The Barndominium not only represents a design style, it represents a lifestyle.

These designs cater to a family’s practical needs for space, sustainability, and technology utilization.  Stacee Lynn and Oliver will share various products and strategies that can aid in your residential projects, demonstrating how incorporating Barndominium design aspects can address common industry challenges.

  • Discover the current trends in barndominium designs.
  • Find out the sustainability aspects of barndominium designs.
