Crafting Tomorrow’s Smart Barndominium Today

Barndominiums fuse the vast space and rustic aesthetic of classic barns with dwelling comforts for the ultimate rural refuge. But in recent years, these barn homes have begun integrating technology advancing capabilities far beyond merely shelter. By thoughtfully incorporating automated features during construction, you can future-proof your barndo as an envy-inducing smart home sanctuary built to stand the test of time.

Plan for High-Performance Power

Start building smart by overestimating your electric needs, then invest in an abundance of outlets, USB ports and beefy wiring capacities exceeding present requirements. Prepare for higher-draw future appliances and lighting needs down the road. Also consider augmenting with solar panels or a Powerwall from Tesla to cut energy costs through self-generated power.

Enable Seamless Smart Integrations

Outfit your barndominium during construction with an advanced home energy management system allowing centralized, app-based control over features throughout. User-friendly platforms from Savant, Control4 or Crestron optimize lighting, temperature, security settings and more all in one dashboard. UniFi network devices offer blazing fast, reliable wifi to support heavy usage.

Future-Proof Through Modularity

Consider modular furniture pieces, partitions and built-ins that can be shifted around or expanded to accommodate evolving needs. Integrate mounting points to hang displays or art anywhere. Use pocket doors, movable wall panels, and flexible transitional spaces without permanently defining room usage.

Customize for Enhanced Experiences

Anticipate how enhancing sight, sound and relaxation can improve time spent at home. Invest in a projector and screen for movie nights, a calibrated surround sound system, and even a bathhouse extension with sauna and steam capabilities for at-home spa relaxation.

By approaching your barndo build planning for tomorrow’s innovations, rather than just replicating today’s dated homes, you can enjoy an inspiring, adaptable high-tech homestead for decades to come. Your barn home becomes a personalized sanctuary and multifunctional headquarters facilitating both productivity and calm.

We are super excited with results and service. Tony offered really helpful suggestions. Our dream build was pretty complicated but he and his designer were able to meet our needs.
