Check Out This Kansas Barndominium – 2 Bed, 2 Bath, Full Details on Construction and More

Today we’re featuring a Kansas barndominium that’s been getting attention from many within the barndominium community. Photos courtesy of Dana Ann Blair, her family has been living in this barndominium outside of Bennington, KS for a number of years.

Featuring 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, we love how this barndominium is special yet achievable. We love all the details that they’ve included for others looking to build their dream barndominium.

We consider our whole building in the sq ft, so as of now we are sitting at a little over $48sqft. We are hoping to stay under $115000. We have one bath left to finish. Which most of the materials are already purchased.


I’m sure once my Husbands starts focusing on his garage area, we’ll end up alot higher.
I give credit to my husband,for spending hours upon hours doing most of the work.
Our septic and well, we budgeted on our first building.
We bought our Kansas barndominium land in 2015, almost 4.5 acres for 18000.
