The barndominium look is attracting attention right now. Whether or not you’re building a steel-framed structure (the first two on this list feature bolt-up metal construction), you can give your clients trendy rustic curb appeal.

Metal-Framed Home with Open Layout

This bold, stylish design from architect David E. Wiggins was his first metal-framed home plan. Read my interview with him here to learn much more about it. The one-story layout feels fresh and open, with generous storage throughout. The ultra-spacious back porch invites outdoor relaxation. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Similar Barndominium Plan with Second Floor

From the same designer, this similar plan also features a bolt-up metal structure, along with a simple footprint, front and back porches, and a flexible layout with a home office. On the main floor, the primary suite shows off a huge walk-in closet and spacious modern bathroom. The rugged trusses in front add to the rustic curb appeal. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Popular Modern Farmhouse

While this plan features conventional wood framing, the look certainly evokes a barn, in the chicest possible way. The kitchen displays a large island that overlooks the dining and living areas for a modern, open vibe. An office on the main floor plus a loft upstairs provide space for getting work done from home. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Simple and Spacious

This modern farmhouse (with conventional wood framing) provides two main suites, one on the main floor and the other upstairs, along with a third suite. That gives plenty of room to live-in relatives or grown children, or even just special guests. Don’t miss the convenient office upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plans.
