Today’s featured home on Barndominium Life is this exceptionally unique and beautifully put together Saskatchewan barndominium built by Mark Barnard. This home has so many unique touches and is so skillfully engineered that we can’t wait to show you everything it has in store for you. This home is thoroughly modern, but still has all the comfort and enjoyable interior design you would want out of an amazing custom barndominium.
One of the most striking things about this Saskatchewan barndominium is the large window series that mirrors the shape of the roof on the front facade. Not only will these windows let in a ton of natural light, they also offer an excellent accent piece before you have even walked in the house. We love the ground-level flood lights that sit below these windows and draw attention to them. This is a perfect touch that highlights just how incredible this home is.
One of the other excellent accent pieces on this barndo’s exterior is the slatted chimney that runs up the side. The perpendicular lines contrast so nicely with the corrugated metal of the pole structure and we think this is an excellent touch that brings the whole exterior together. By having this different flow of lines, the chimney gives off an incredibly unique effect.
Next to that large window array is the covered porch entrance. Because the shape of this awning mirrors the shape of the windows, it is an excellent supporting structure that gives the whole front facade a nice, cohesive feel. Also, it is a great contrast to the metal exterior with the organic, natural wood.
The outside of this home is skillfully designed, but the inside is downright inspired. At the entrance, you can see the interior mirror of that beautiful exterior chimney and the intricately designed stonework that sits on top of it. You can also see the result of that large window array and how it lets in such an abundance of beautiful natural light.
Of course, one of the most unique and exciting aspects of this entire Saskatchewan barndominium is the vintage truck bed bar. Located right at the landing of the stairs, this is such a cool and interesting element. If it were in any other home, it might not work as well, but because it is located in such a cleanly designed interior, it is able to stand out as an accent piece and become a real focal point of the entire room.
The main theme of this Saskatchewan barndominium seems to be unique accents that are able to exist in a clean and uncluttered space. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the TV room with the hanging window pane light fixtures. These are so unique, and just like the truck bed bar, might not work in a less skillfully put together home. However, because they are so artfully arranged and well done, they stand out as something to really grab your attention without being too overwhelming or in the way.
The kitchen in this Saskatchewan barndominium also has that same sense of style and aesthetic as the rest of the house. There are just enough unique touches to make it interesting without making it feel overwhelming. We think this is the secret to creating a home that is all your own and at the same time making it feel clean and comfortable.
The large, finished dining room table is the clear focal point of the dining area. However, the interesting light fixture hanging above it combined with that incredible light gray hardwood floor is worth raving about as well. We think all of these elements come together incredibly well, especially the natural, live-edge pillar that separates the kitchen from the living area.
The bedrooms in this Saskatchewan barndominium are spare but incredibly beautiful. The hardwood floor is especially effective as something to draw your eye and make the room look large and the dark paint works wonders to create an excellent balance. Plus, we love the craftsman-style end tables and bed that just bring a touch of class to this already classy area of the house.
The bathrooms are also incredibly well designed and meant to be used as well as admired. We love the shower tile that matches that light gray hardwood flooring as well as the dark color of the vanity. There is also something so charming about the small round mirror and the way it doesn’t take up the entire width of the vanity. Plus, that recessed light strip is incredibly unique and a very cool touch.
This aesthetic continues in the main bathroom with a nod to that same small mirror look with the double vanity. The black cabinetry and black hardware contrast with the sinks and general light feeling of the paint so well. This attention to detail is what makes this Saskatchewan barndominium such a uniquely beautiful and interesting home.
