Barndominiums Builders in Austin, TX | Mangum Builders

Though barndominiums have been around for decades, they have begun to pop up more and moreover the last five years. What makes these rustic beauties suddenly so popular? 

Some suggest that the new interest is due to a barndominium renovation on the show Fixer Upper, while others have pondered whether the rise of barndominiums is a spacious response to the tiny home trend. Whatever the reason, their unique shapes and styles make barndominiums perfect Austin, TX custom homes.

What Is a Barndominium?

The name of a barndominium really says it all. Combining the open space of a barn with the living quarters of a condominium, a barndominium is the right home for people who want to live where they play. Whether your passion is riding horses, driving recreational vehicles, playing music, or dancing, this home gives you plenty of room to do your thing. 

Though they are often prefabricated metal buildings, these styles are extremely flexible. Some barndominiums are repurposed farm properties like barns or other steel structures, with design features such as a gambrel roof or silo turret that highlight the home’s past life.  

Though their rustic charm may bring the Highland Lakes or Hill Country to mind, their scalable designs also make barndominiums a fine fit for Tarrytown or Westlake Hills. Other common features of these custom homes in Austin and the surrounding areas include:

  • Open floor plans that use mixed materials like polished cement floors, window walls and cedar ceiling beams for a Texas Modern look
  • Overhead or roll-up doors that allow easy flow between interior and exterior spaces
  • Wrap-around covered porches with plenty of space for shaded open-air relaxation
  • Extra-large garages for boats, RVs or trailers

Because barndominiums often use prefabricated steel for their frame, these houses have a reduced cost and build time, giving you extra funds to spend on luxury finishes and features. When you design your home with a custom home builder in Austin, you can make your barndominium dreams a reality.
