Hamilton, TX Barndominium
The exterior of the modern Hamilton Texas Barndominium uses a contrasting black and white color theme for a modern and sleek design. The exterior also has a ground rock feature that comes up about ⅓ up the wall. This provides a natural and organic element to the home to give it a cozy and lived-in design feature. The challenge with many barndominiums is that they can often just look like rectangular metal buildings. By providing the rock wall features around the perimeter of the home, RFH Services ensures that the building actually looks like a home.
The Hamilton Barndominium also has two overhangs located at both the front and rear entrances of the property. These provide extra protection for homeowners to protect themselves from the elements while still enjoying the large property space of their home. The two overhangs also provide a great space to store equipment that needs to be protected in the outdoors and the rear overhang extends significantly past the home to add extra protection to the back porch.
The barndo also features a parking area right beside its barn-door style doors. The extensive space can be used to park equipment, recreational vehicles, and much more. If you’re planning on doing any renovations or large-scale work around your home, the extensive parking space can be a great way to store equipment, vehicles, and storage. The dual barn-style garage doors also provide great access and storage options for homeowners with two personal vehicles or for those who’d like to convert a portion of their garage into a workspace.
To give the barndominium a more cozy and barn-style look, the Hamilton Barndominium also has wooden, barn-style overhead doors which provide a much warmer and more comfortable feature to the home. Many barndominiums use sheet metal doors which can often look like warehouse truck loading docks rather than a garage door entrance. The dual garage door entrances also have a simple and elegant style on them to provide that customization and personality that many barndominiums often lack.
A home should be equally noticeable at night and the profile of the Hamilton Barndominium can’t be completed without talking about its exterior lighting. The barndominium has exterior LED spotlights located all around the perimeter of the building and there isn’t a section that isn’t illuminated at night. The lighting gives the home a unique and cozy feel and ensures homeowners that they aren’t returning just to a metal box but to home.
A problem many barndominiums face is a lack of natural lighting due to an inadequate number of windows and placement. The modern Hamilton Texas Barndominium makes great use of its open square footage by providing many floor-to-ceiling windows and numerous sliding windows along every facade. The windows are also placed in central locations, such as the kitchen, living room, and dining room, maximizing the natural lighting for homeowners.
Kitchen and Dining Areas
Porch and Backyard
We love the back porch of the modern Hamilton Texas Barndominium. It has an exterior fireplace and a spacious area for homeowners to entertain themselves and their guests while enjoying a great view of the backyard. The porch also has floor-to-ceiling windows that let you peek inside the house during outings and entertain guests both indoors and outdoors. The exterior fireplace and outdoor fans can be a great way to enjoy an outdoor campfire and give a home a great profile that we love.
One feature we absolutely love about the Hamilton Barndominium is its extensive backyard location at the rear of the property. The large backyard is a great multi-use area to let your kids out to play without worry, for entertaining a large number of guests, and much more. The backyard is also located directly beside the back patio and we think it’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors right beside your home.
This modern Hamilton Texas Barndominium is a unique and elegant home that comes with some amazing features to give a home that unique personality. Just by reviewing the outside, we can tell that the home emphasizes a cozy, modern, and simple design. Many barndominium can often look like rectangular, metal boxes but RFP Services has gone above and beyond to make sure this barndominium feels like a home.
