Floor Plan Description:

Barndominums have become a popular way to save money while building homes but many online plans stray from the original concept, creating more traditional homes that simply look like barns. Our goal is to realize the original concept of an affordable pole barn with interior partitioned living spaces. We developed this service to allow you to utilize our home design expertise to build out the interior of the barn that you have chosen without having to pay for an entire home design.

How it works:

1.) Free 15-30 minute introductory phone call.

We will discuss your project and you can have the opportunity to share your family's needs and exactly what you're looking for. Afterwards, you can send us the specs on the pole barn that you plan on building. 

2.) 3D Modeling 2-4 Days:

We will model your chosen barn in 3D and create a custom interior layout per your family's needs. We will produce 2D floorplans and exterior elevations for you to review prior to the design session.

3.) 60-minute Design Session:

We will set up a screen-share when you are available and walk through the plans live in 3D so you can see the barndominium live and suggest and make changes in real-time. 

4.) Final Review & Print:

We will print the changes made during the session and allow you a final chance to comment before printing dimensioned floorplans, elevations and renderings that you can hand off to your contractor for construction.

Deliverables:

  • 1 60-Minute Remote Design Session
  • 4X Exterior Renders
  • Dimensioned 2D Floorplans (PDF)
  • Annotated 2D Elevations (PDF)

Note:

Interior layouts are per the latest edition of the International Residential Code (IRC), these are not engineered framing or construction plans. Those plans should come from your barn designer or contractor.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do the Foundation Options Work?

All of our plans come with a slab or crawlspace option. Most of our plans also come with a basement option, but that option is sometimes not available when there is no interior staircase. For basement plans, the staircase access is typically under the main stair as shown on the floorplan. The basement plan is delivered as a blank slate in the same footprint as the conditioned first floor. We can help you layout a custom basement floor plan using our flat rate customization service. 

For a slab or crawlspace foundation, the area under the main stair area is typically delivered as a closet. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions! 

Are these house plans to code & permit ready?

We design all of our plans to the  International Residential Code (IRC / IBC) which is the most widely adopted code. However building code is administered at the local jurisdiction (there are estimated to be more than 20,000 jurisdictions in the US!). So there may be some subtle variations that need require edits. 

 

We pride ourselves on our very detailed plans, and are constantly updating our house plans to ensure that they meet even the most stringent permit requirements. Locations may require local site-specific structural engineering or a locally licensed architect to review and stamp plans. 

 

We recommend all house plans get reviewed by a structural engineer to optimize for local design conditions (site topography, soil conditions, snow loads, wind loads, & seismic loads).

Can I get a printed set of plans?

Yes, you can add any number of printed plan sets in the cart page for $40/ea shipped 3rd party. 

Alternatively, plans can be easily printed at your local large format printing store (Fedex, UPS Store, etc) for about $50-70/copy.

How are these plans guaranteed?

If the plan you purchased does not work out for any reason, we will exchange for a different plan for free. (limit one use per customer)

Because we design 100% of our house plans in-house, we are the only house plan design company that offers the benefit of a price guarantee!

Can I purchase the plans now and pay for Modifications, CAD files or Prints later?

Yes, no problem. 

You can always add any of our additional services after the fact and we will make sure it gets to you.

What is the finished area and unfinished area?

In short, the finished area is shaded blue/gray on the plans and the unfinished area is beige.

The finished area always includes all enclosed living spaces, except for bonus rooms or attics. 

The unfinished area includes, garages, porches, attics and bonus rooms. 

If selected, basement square footage is not included in the finished area.

Can I change the materials?

Yes! 

The exterior and interior materials shown are just one possible option you can choose. 

In our construction drawings, the material is always annotated 'as specified by owner' so you are not locked into a specific material or pattern. 

All materials are up to you, the owner, to pick out and specify to your contractor.
