The term barndominium can loosely be defined as a barn or storage shed that’s been converted to include living space. It was coined by a developer in New England in the late 1980s who started out marketing these low-cost units for acreage owned by horse owners. Typically single-story sheet-metal structures that combine living quarters with a workspace, equipment storage area or even horse stalls, barndominiums have evolved from their low-maintenance, humble origins to more elaborate structures that include guest accommodations on ranch property to full-time homes to attractive vacation-rental properties on sites like In fact, just as the tiny-home movement has become de rigueur of late, early this year Pinterest revealed that barndominium was one of its top ten trending search terms by male users of the popular photo-pinning site. Browse the photo gallery above for examples of barndominiums listed for sale in Texas, where barndominium living is now as ubiquitous as boots and bluebonnets.

    My cousin recently moved into a barndominium but I had no idea what that was. Thanks for the information about how it is a barn or storage shed that has been converted into a living space. They look cool and I might consider moving into one later in life.
