Today’s featured home is a testament to the versatility of barndominiums and how they can be easily constructed to fit one’s lifestyle! This Michigan barndominium is connected to a massive shop and offers a small but functional living space, making this the perfect place for someone who enjoys working with their hands or pursuing their hobbies.
Exterior – Michigan Barndominium
Set atop a generous piece of property, this Michigan barndominium has been designed and constructed to fit the lifestyle and needs of its owner, Scott Udell. The shop is large enough to accommodate multiple vehicles, and the living space is cozy but comfortable.
The covered porch area provides additional space for outdoor cooking or simply relaxing on a beautiful day.
The real star of this property is the massive shop space which can accommodate multiple vehicles, workbenches, and storage. This is the perfect place for anyone who enjoys working with their hands, running their own business, or pursuing hobbies. The high ceilings also provide the opportunity to add a mezzanine level, which would be perfect for extra storage or a home office.
The home’s exterior features a trendy dark green vertical siding with a black wrap-around border. Matching perfectly with the large grey shop, this home has a modern and sleek appearance.
The generously sized lot allows for plenty of additional parking or driving thanks to its gravel laneway, and the home’s small footprint, only 420 sq ft of living quarters, allows for very little maintenance. This is the perfect property for anyone who wants to downsize without giving up their hobbies or workspace!
The home and shop are serviced by a well, which can be found in the well house, set next to the Michigan barndominium.
Interior – Michigan Barndominium
Indoors, the small but functional living area provides all the comfort and necessities one requires without the additional clutter and upkeep of a larger home. The kitchen is complete with full-sized appliances and plenty of storage, while the living room is cozy and perfect for relaxing after a long day.
Though small, the living area still provides enough room for two spacious seating areas. Seamlessly flowing into the kitchen, the peninsula allows for meal seating and additional counter space for food preparation.
Optimizing space, owner Scott Udell uses all the vertical space available, as we can see with the hanging pot holder, floating open shelves, and coat rack. At the back of the kitchen, there is access to the shop area, which is definitely convenient.
Despite having limited space, this kitchen area still provides plenty of storage and work areas. The floating shelves are both functional and stylish as the live edge wood perfectly matches the decor of the rest of the home.
The all-wooden interior gives the home a warm and inviting feeling, perfect for relaxing after a day’s work. The home’s one bedroom is located just off the kitchen area, providing privacy and peace of mind for its occupant.
This Michigan barndominium features two bathrooms, one in the main living area and one conveniently located in the shop.
This Michigan barndominium is the perfect example of how barndominiums can be easily tailored to fit any lifestyle! Whether you’re looking for a functional workspace or a cozy place to call home, a barndominium can be the perfect solution.
