We’ve mentioned before that Pinterest still rules the Internet in terms of barndominium ideas – photos, videos, and floor plans.

But there’s a little known resource that shouldn’t be overlooked as you search for inspiration.

It’s YouTube.

Of course, seven out of ten quality barndo tours that appear when you type in any variation of “barnominium” there are probably going to be hosted by the personable owner of Texas Barndominiums, Erik Cortina. And that’s okay.

His channel just topped 50,000 subscribers and, arguably, he’s a big reason for the recent upsurge in barndo popularity.

Few had ever heard of barndominiums before he recorded his first show and posted it.

One of his little-known videos heads up this post.

A quick foray into Florida horse country

Now, let’s look at a barn home in the horse country of Ocala, Florida. It was for sale not that long ago by Ocala Homes & Farms Realty.

  • 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath
  • Sitting in the middle of 20 acres
  • 10-foot ceilings
  • Concrete countertops
  • 2 copper sinks
  • Unique mosaic backsplash
  • Custom cabinets

This beautfully done video, featuring drone footage, barndominium photos, and select video clips  reveals one good decorating design idea after another. Perhaps it will help with your planned barn home.

Your search for great barndominium ideas and inspiration.

Watch it and see what we mean. Again, the photos don’t do this barndo proper justice.


And last but not least…

Closing out this post is  a 42×68 foot barndo with 2850 sq ft., two ample porches, front and back, four bedrooms and two and a half baths.

A full 800 sq ft is devoted to the wide open great room. And top-notch touches are everywhere. Granite countertops, stained and shining concrete floors, as well as custom cabinetry throughout.

We devote a lot of space on this website about acting as your own contractor to save money. But for many people, getting a turnkey custom barndo is their only option.

Starting at around $125 a sq ft, Texas Barndominiums is at the low end of the pricey range charged by turnkey  barndo builders, but seems to historically give folks their money’s worth, with quality workmanship and attention to detail.

You won’t learn all you need to know through a YouTube subscription to Cortina’s folksy channel. But it will help.

And if you can subscribe to our channel as well, we’d appreciate it.
