7 TIPS TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT BARNDOMINIUM PLANS FOR California
If you live in California here are a few things you need to consider before choosing a barndo plan.
1. WHAT WOULD YOU DO DIFFERENTLY?
2. WILL YOUR LIFE LOOK DIFFERENT IN THE NEXT 5-7 YEARS?
3. WHAT DOES YOUR LOT LOOK LIKE?
4. WHAT STYLE OF HOME DO YOU LOVE?
This is a big one and you do not want to compromise if you can help it. Build what you love. We realize that sometimes you have to compromise and settle for less than your dreams. But try your best to choose something as close to your dream home as you can. We even suggest building a slightly smaller house if it will help you build the style of home you love. There’s nothing worse than having regrets and wishing you had chosen a different house plan than you did. So don’t rush it, and keep searching until you find the perfect plan or you decide to build your own custom plan.
5. ONE STORY OR TWO HOUSE PLAN?
Many families in California love one-story barndominium homes, they are more quiet since there is no foot traffic from the second story. You may notice a lot of ranch style homes in your area, but a ranch style house plan is more expensive to build than a two story house. That’s because it is always cheaper to build up than it is to build out. A single story barndominium house has more roof and more foundation, these two factors add a tremendous about to the building costs. Families with smaller children tend to choose barndo house plans that have a master bedroom on the second floor. This allows them to be near their children’s rooms. Either way, most likely the style of home you choose will dictate if the house will be a one-story home or a two-story house plan.
An open floor plan simply means there are less walls and more open spaces to enjoy your family. Many people love the idea of an open floor plan in the kitchen and living room area so whoever is preparing meals in the kitchen won’t miss out on the big game or movie that everyone may be watching in the living or gathering room. Open concept floor plans are real popular these days and you should be able to find plenty house plans that match this criteria.
7. CONSIDER THE OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES
Many families in California love their outdoor living spaces. Barndominium floor plans are real popular and some even have large remote doors that open onto a patio, expanding the living space. If you love to live outdoors, consider how easily you can transition from inside to outside. In other words, if you choose a plan that has an outdoor kitchen, think about how close that space is to your indoor kitchen. No one ever wants to walk across the other side of the house to get to the grill. Also having the indoor kitchen close to the outdoor living space can help you stay connected to your family as they are enjoying both spaces. Check out this barndominium article on Zillow
