Unlocking the Amazing Storage Potential of Barndominiums


Unlocking the Incredible Storage Potential of Barndominiums

With their spacious steel construction, barndominiums provide storage opportunities far surpassing typical housing. Let’s explore how to build abundant capacity right into floorplans, repurpose excess space creatively, and complement with detached buildings for maximized storage.

Incorporate Storage into Floorplan Design

Thanks to abundant square footage, you can integrate customized storage directly into barndo layouts:

– Convert excess horse stalls into secure, caged storage rooms outfitted with heavy duty shelving, racks and drawer systems to organize tools, inventory or valuables.

– Construct walk-in pantries doubling or tripling the size of standard kitchen layouts to store bulk dry goods or preserve harvests from garden produce.

Design oversized mudrooms with built-in cabinetry and coat racks to accommodate family members’ extensive gear collections.

– Build oversized closet systems into all bedrooms to handle a child’s growth from crib to college or a couple’s expansive wardrobe.

– Finish bonus climate controlled attic space above bedrooms to store off-season clothing/linens or hide away holiday decorations.

Add soaring storage lofts overlooking great rooms to display collectibles securely or corral kids’ ever-growing toy accumulation.

Repurpose Leftover Interior Space

Barndominiums easily provide thousands of extra square feet over typical homes.

Adapt leftover areas creatively:

– Display your antique car collection in unfinished open space safely away from external elements.

– Install industrial shelving units to store pallet loads of inventory for eCommerce businesses under one roof.

– Construct interior partitions with humidity control ideal for protecting wood shop projects during the curing process.

– Build secure cage storage with surveillance cameras to safeguard critical documents or valuables discretely.

Build Dedicated Outbuildings

Add even more capacity with detached buildings:

– Oversized steel workshop structures house all the specialty hobby tools and machinery your home garage can’t contain.

– Construct multi-bay carports to keep your half dozen prized vehicles protected under steel roofs rather than crammed into a small garage.

– Basic pole barns provide economical uninsulated space solely for off-season RV & boat storage needs.

– Install climate-controlled shed spaces equipped with humidity regulation, ventilation and security to create galleries protecting your fine art collections.

With attentive design and complementary builds, your storage possibilities with a barndominium are truly endless!

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.
