Incredible Barn with a Cupola and an Open Covered Porch

Barn homes are gaining in popularity. What do you think it is? I suspect it’s a combination of the traditional, rustic look of them, the simplicity of the structure, and the relatively low cost of building them that draw people towards building homes out of barns (barn-style buildings I guess aren’t barns per se).

We’ve been looking at some of the barn homes made by Sand Creek Post and Beam lately, who look like they’re actually a pretty big name in the field, given the amount of houses they have in their inventory, and the range of styles, even within the format of strictly barn houses. This one is their Great Plains model.

Great Plains Western Horse Barn Home
