Large family? A barndominium could very well be the perfect structure for your dream home.
When you choose to build a barndo, you’ll enjoy the freedom of designing and building your forever home without being hampered by the strict rules that come with other styles of dwelling.
To give you an idea of just how flexible this type of residence can be, start by looking at floor plans. You’ll be surprised by the various ways you could house your family, with the perfect balance of comfort and customized preferences on equal footing.
60×60 Barndominium Floor Plans
We gathered 8 unique floor plans for 60×60-foot barndominiums. Each one can be implemented as is or tweaked to suit your family’s specific lifestyle.
60×60 Barndominium Floor Plans Open Concept with Porch Plus Other Amenities
With a floor area of 60 x 60 feet, you have more than enough space to include amenities according to what your lifestyle dictates. A home-based business, hobbies, recreation activities, etc. are all things to consider, as these floor plans prove.
Got teenagers? Then this floor plan is perfect for you. It includes a rumpus room, strategically placed at the back right corner of the house, where they can be as loud and rowdy as their heart desires while playing billiards and video games. With its own closet, this space can double as a guest room as well.
The porch leads to the front half of this home, a huge open area for living, dining, and cooking. Guests can easily access a powder room and toilet from here. The well-appointed kitchen comes with its own utility room, pantry, and closet.
Two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and walk-in closet, occupy the remaining area in the back of this barndo. This flexible design accommodates a wide range of family sizes and ages.
Specially created for families running a home-based business, this layout assigns spaces for a shop and an office as well. Both are thoughtfully situated to the left side of the barndo, separating professional and personal space including the entrances.
For convenience, a half bath is added to the shop and the office is accessible not only from the shop but also from the kitchen inside the home.
Having a porch in this type of setup provides the occupants a private zone to wind down on weekdays and lounge around on weekends. It directs to the open area, with a kitchen that includes a pantry and a half bath for visitors.
Just like the previous floor plan, this plan also features 2 bedrooms, each with a bathroom and a walk-in closet.
A brilliant take on accessibility, this blueprint positions the open area in the middle of the home, and in a linear fashion. It allows family members to enter the dwelling from either side – through the porch on the right or via the garage on the left.
You will appreciate the amenities incorporated in various parts of this barndo: The garage includes a utility room and a closet. A half bath is added to the open area. And an office is available for family members working from home.
Ideal for large families, this residence boasts 4 bedrooms each with their own bathroom.
What we love about this unique floor plan is that it provides a haven for a family of busy bees with varied interests and preoccupations.
The garage connects to a workshop which could also serve as a utility room and is accessible from the home’s living area as well. It is a strategic location for those who are into carpentry, upcycling or love tinkering with their cars. A workbench, power tools and hardware can be easily hauled in and out.
Meanwhile, artists will find the studio inside the abode conducive for an outflow of creative juices. The 11×26-foot room can comfortably accommodate the resident ballet dancer, sculptor, painter, or even a musical band. Alternatively, it can function as a home office.
This barndo is designed for efficiency. The 3 bedrooms are tucked away from the high traffic common areas. The master bedroom comes with its own bathroom and walk-in closet, while occupants in the 2 other bedrooms can share the standalone bathroom.
And, of course, there’s the porch which leads to the open area. It is equipped with a half bath within easy reach from both hobby rooms.
60×60 Barndominium Floor Plans for Large Families
Does your family live a fairly simple, uncluttered life? Or do you simply wish to disconnect your home from the world of work and school? Then you will find these floor plans charming:
If you have 4 children (or more), you will love this barndo. It is a well-thought-out plan aimed at maximizing every space available while keeping privacy and efficient traffic flow in mind.
All the common areas are on a linear path on the west wing of the home. From the main door, you pass the living room going to the dining room, and then the kitchen. It ends with the laundry room and the pantry at the corner.
The east wing houses all of the sleeping quarters: A master bedroom with master bathroom and closet, 2 bedrooms with a shared bathroom, and 2 additional bedrooms again with a shared bathroom as well. An additional standalone bathroom can come in handy when you entertain guests.
If you wish to add a family room to your home, then this floor plan will give you an idea of how to go about it while maintaining comfort and convenience for every member of the household.
The key is laying out your barndo from a horizontal perspective. This way, you can have all the common areas in the front half and reserve the back half for sleeping quarters and the rec room.
Notice how creatively the bedrooms are positioned? Don’t you just love the fact that you can still fit in a master bedroom, bathroom and closet plus 4 other bedrooms? And it doesn’t end there. 2 bedrooms share one bathroom, the 2 others share another bathroom, and an extra bathroom is added next to the family room.
That’s a total of 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a multi-purpose room! And you also get a pantry and a laundry room beside the kitchen. Wow!
A classic take on planning a home for a large brood, this design caters to multigenerational families. The residence is vertically divided into three parts.
At the back of the rightmost part, you can find the master bedroom with a master bathroom and master closet. To the front is a bedroom separated from the master’s by a bathroom. To the left of the house are one bedroom with its own bathroom, and 2 more bedrooms sharing a bathroom.
The living room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, and laundry are all found on a linear trail in the middle where everyone can converge without encroaching on each other’s privacy.
Another masterpiece in maximizing space, this blueprint arranges the sleeping quarters in an L-shape running from the front to the back of the right side of the home.
Also fit for a large family, this barndo houses a master bedroom with a master bathroom and master closet and 2 bedrooms with one shared bathroom. Another bedroom comes with an adjacent bathroom.
The main door opens to a triangular setup of the living room to the right, dining room to the left, and kitchen at their apex. Tucked into the back are the pantry and laundry room.
