The 5 Best Barndominium Shop Plans with Living Quarters

In Uncategorized by Andrew Michael108 Comments

In planning for our new barndominium, we thought how cool it would be to have a big shop area under the same roof as our 3-bedroom living quarters. So we set about searching for the best barndominium floor plans:

What do the best barndominium shop plans with living quarters look like? Ideally, they are between 30×60 and 40×60 feet long, although there are a few arena-size plans that are as large as 40×90. These are typically 3 or 4 bedroom barndos with either a shop, garage, or stables under the same roof. But a few surprised us.

Read on for more details.

What barndominium floor plans are best suited to a shop?

Once you decide how big a shop you want, then you can simply look for different size floor plans. A Google search turns up a few. But a Google Images query reveals dozens of them — although many don’t lead to a site from which you can download plans.

This is because a couple of enterprising webpreneurs have decided to bait you with floor plans copied from elsewhere on the Internet. The links lead most often to a phony domain, seeking only your attention on a variety of Google ads.

This is annoying, but ultimately useful as you can often come away with a floor plan you haven’t seen before. And with some help from barndominium design software or a “live” architect, you can begin turning those downloaded and altered plans into your dream barndo.

1 Bedroom Small Barndominium With Shop Floor Plan

Here’s the perfect little barndo for way back in the woods, Check out, for example, the wood stove in the kitchen and the ironing board in the master bath closet. We’re not sure, but we would bet this plan was originally drawn on a roadhouse bar napkin somewhere in Oregon….

Our second example is what amounts to a 2-bedroom cottage with 30×30 shop area. Note the generous 20-foot long family room and the huge kitchen area with big island — just right for party mingling.

A 35×65 Barndominium with Shop Floor Plan

Here’s an imaginative 65-foot long barndo with 35×35 shop area. It makes good use of the apartment area with a 3-bedroom layout and a roomy kitchen/dining combo.

This one is a very similar size to the one above, but seems have much more living area. It also sports an extra third bedroom in addition to the master bedroom!

We love the way this barndominium floor plan maximizes the space it is given. We don’t think it’d be too expensive to build given its small square footage.

A 30×90 Barndominium Shop Plans with Living Quarters

Who says you have to stop at 60 feet? or 70? Or even 80? This generously proportioned living area gives way to a roomy shop area. Note the incredibly luxurious master bath.

We love this use of space and especially like the entire master area with its entire wing of the house. If you’re looking for a bit more privacy, strongly consider this floor plan for your barndominium.

40×60 (Almost!) Barndominium Floor Plan with Shop

Another good example of why many good things come in small packages. Clearly, this highly customized 40×53 barndominium that is all about the shop areas was designed for someone who just wants a place to crash after spending a long but fulfilling day working, we imagine, on his classic car collection. OK, maybe it’s a new boat…Or an old boat.

We love the fact that this barndominium tries to keep the shop/garage area as far away from the main living areas as possible.

How Much Does it Cost to Build a Barndominium with a Shop?

However, looking with longing at these well-executed blueprints, we can’t ignore the fact that you’re still going to be paying for all that space, even if it is cool. Here are some numbers from

Using your unit for anything other than simple storage increases its costs. The average pole building costs $4,000 to $50,000. Flooring, doors and insulation push the price between $2,000 and $20,000 above the standard estimates. A 40×80 pole-based home with a porch and loft ranges between $50,000 and $60,000.

And, another pertinent factoid:

How much does it cost to build a 40×60 barndominium with shop?

Total costs for labor and materials can be $8,000-$50,000 or more. Graber Buildings estimates that a 20×40-foot wood structure costs $10,000 for the materials and$4,000 for labor, while a 40×60-foot building would cost $18,000 and a 36×48-foot structure would be $29,000.

And, finally…A 35×70 Barndominium Floor Plan with Shop

Here’s a bonus 35×70 plan from one of our best designers on our staff. Spacious living quarters with an open kitchen give way to a 30×35 ft shop area. Nicely done!

  3. De producten van dit merk zijn 100% THC-vrij
    en zijn met de nieuwste technieken ontwikkeld, waardoor de producten wel 6 keer beter worden opgenomen door het lichaam dan producten van andere merken. Voordat
    je gebruikt maakt van een medisch product als CBD olie, is het wel slim om eerst na te gaan of het wel veilig is of
    niet. Het kan maanden, soms jaren, duren voordat olifanten omgaan met het verlies van een oudste
    soortgenoot en het gevoel van harmonie binnen de kudde weer is hersteld,
    legt Czujkowska uit. CBD olie is geen vervanging voor
    voorgeschreven medicatie en wij raden u dan ook aan om u goed te informeren over CBD-olie voordat u overgaat
    op het gebruik hiervan. Daarom is het wel belangrijk om eerst te overleggen met een arts over het gebruik van CBD olie.
    Wel kan je een licht ontspannen staat ervaren. Aangezien de
    verwerking van de hennepplant steeds beter wordt, kan in steeds meer gevallen ook de
    CBDA bewaard blijven. Inmiddels is CBD olie geen huismiddeltje
    meer voor obscure kruidenvrouwtjes. Allereerst willen we u
    wijzen op ons artikel waarin we in normale taal aan u uitleggen wat CBD olie precies is.
