Breezeways are trending now among current and future homeowners, albeit for various reasons: increased ventilation, protection from the elements, and outdoor entertaining.
If you’re one of them and you already own a barndominium or are planning to construct one, then you’re in luck! This article will help you design and build your dream home, or improve your existing abode, with a breezeway.
Check out the barndominium floor plans with breezeway below to see how it can be possible.
8 Barndominium Floor Plans with Breezeway, Master Bedroom, Family Room, and More!
We’ve curated 8 floor plans specially designed for barndo homes with a breezeway. Some are perfect for large families, while others are more appropriate for medium-sized households. We hope these creations will inspire you to draft yours according to your family’s specific lifestyle.
Barndominium Floor Plans with Breezeway – Modern Designs with Master Bedroom and Family Room
Many large households wish to have a family room where they can spend weekends bonding, playing indoor games, and watching movie marathons together. In the two layouts below, your wish is granted, thanks to the addition of a breezeway.
Have a large family? This barndo offers all the elbow room and amenities you need for comfortable living.
The breezeway is strategically placed between the living and sleeping sections. To the left are the vertically aligned living, dining, and kitchen areas. A pantry and a laundry room are added to the kitchen, which is also equipped with a 4-seater island.
From this structure, you can cross over the breezeway through a side door by the dining area to enter the other side of the home.
A family room greets you, with a bathroom behind which it shares with 1 of the bedrooms. The front part is occupied by 2 bedrooms that share a bathroom in between. And to the back is the master bedroom with a master bathroom and master closet. Simply luxurious!
This floor plan is an iteration of the above with 3 different features:
First, the main door of the left section is found on the side instead of in front, making a horizontal alignment. This time, it is by the living room and also serves as the access door through the breezeway.
Second, the family room is moved to the front part, though it still serves as the entry to the sleeping zone.
And third, there are only 2 bedrooms which share one bathroom. The master bedroom with the master bathroom and master closet remain in the same location.
Barndominium Floor Plans with Breezeway – Classic Designs with Master Suite
For couples planning to age in place in their forever home, we offer two model barndos with larger master’s quarters to make your dream come true.
This blueprint is ideal for large families who prefer having bigger bedrooms. The simple solution is to exclude the family room from the 2 floor plans above. Voila! More space for the sleeping quarters.
Similar to the 2 previous designs, this one also separates the living and sleeping sections with a breezeway in between. But here, the perspective is reversed – the living, dining, and kitchen areas are situated to the left while the bedrooms are to the right.
From the horizontally aligned living section, you can access the breezeway by the main door across the dining area. You then enter the other side of the home via a front hall.
An iteration of the floor plan above, this layout adds even more space to the bedrooms by removing one of them. Also, the front hall in the sleeping section occupies a part of the breezeway instead.
As you can see, the master bedroom, bathroom, and closet now take up the entire half of the sleeping zone.
Barndominium Floor Plans with Breezeway – Open Concept with 3 Bedrooms
The open concept has been gaining popularity in recent years because of the additional space it provides by simply combining the living and dining areas. A breezeway perfectly complements this approach. Below are two examples.
Do you want to add a bedroom to the living section of your abode? Then this design is perfect for you! It is made possible by the open concept. Combining the living and dining areas opens up enough square footage to accommodate the required space.
As a bonus, you also get a bathroom, closet, and pantry behind the kitchen. Plus, a utility room with a back door. Sweet!
Meanwhile, on the other side of the breezeway are 2 spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and walk-in closet. This section is accessible through the door that opens up to a hallway.
This barndo design is ideal for medium-sized families running a home-based business. The breezeway is ingeniously situated behind the living section. This way, the owners can accommodate clients in the open concept living-dining area without interrupting the backend of their trade.
On the other side of the breezeway, the structure includes the home office, 2 storage rooms, and a utility room with its own side exit for loading and unloading supplies and finished products.
Two bedrooms are equipped with their own bathrooms, while the third can use the one beside it. This is an intentional feature, made to be shared with workers and suppliers.
Barndominium Floor Plans with Breezeway – Open Concept with 4 Bedrooms
The open concept is highly recommended for large families. It allows for ease of movement within and through common areas. Take a look at the 2 barndo designs below.
For multigenerational households, this dwelling is a great choice. The breezeway becomes a functional addition, providing privacy to an extended family or elderly grandparents.
To the left is the “full residence,” so to speak. It comprises an open concept living-dining area, and across it, 2 bedrooms with a shared bathroom in between. The kitchen is placed at the back part, furnished with a 4-seater island, half bath, pantry, and utility room for efficiency.
On the other side of the breezeway are 2 huge bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and walk-in closet.
If you like entertaining, then you will love this barndo. The front structure is dedicated to the open concept living-dining area, nothing else. It comes with double doors at the entrance to facilitate a smooth traffic flow for guests. This space is great for hosting events as well if you happen to operate such a business.
Double doors are also used for the back part for easier access to and from the back structure through the bridgeway. You will need it because the kitchen is there. For the family’s convenience and privacy, it is outfitted with a 4-seater island and a pantry. A half bath and a utility room with a side exit door stand behind it to service suppliers, assistants, and delivery crews.
Privacy is likewise ensured for the 4 bedrooms. Two have their own bathrooms, while the other two share a bathroom that can be accessed only through their bedrooms.
