What is bardominium? Could it be your next home?

You may not be familiar with the Barndominium style, but this style is growing in popularity. barndominium, also known as “barndos”, began as a practical housing option. Many farmers and ranchers built an attic over their working barn to keep their keepers close by.

Today, barn dominiums are becoming more popular for luxury homes and vacation rentals, especially in upscale rural areas with ranches and vineyards. Fixer Upper’s Chip and Joanna Gaines remodeled a barn for the show and caused a stir on social media about these unique homes.
