Country Barn Home Kit with Open Porch

Houses October 24, 2016

Barns are becoming increasingly popular. They are no longer just used for housing farm animals. It is not uncommon to see renovated barns used as event venues or gallery space. What is it about barns that has everyone raving? The rustic charm of a country barn is undeniable. To many it may feel a lot like home. Others may see it as a unique space that provides a warm atmosphere, perfect for nights spent at home or family gatherings. Either way, the country barn has been so popular that Sand Creek Post & Beam has manufactured a home kit with this style in mind.

The Ponderosa Country Barn Home has the style and warmth of a traditional barn structure without the smell or mess! It is a total of 2,376 sq.ft. with three bedrooms and two and half bathrooms. This home’s open floor plan allows you to host your family and friends without being divided up into separate rooms. The interior beams, columns, and exposed wood provide an authenticity to structure. If you would like to create a more stylish space you could accent your home with white wash or a dark stain.

Paint is always an option as well, but it will cover the grain of the wood which would result in a less rustic look. The front of the home is complimented by a 600 sq.ft. porch complete with wooden columns. This is a great opportunity for some rocking chairs or outdoor seating.

This home kit could be used as a primary residence or a vacation home. Upon purchase, Sand Creek Post & Beam will ship a per-manufactured home kit to the customer. For those of us who feel building your own home sounds like a tedious process just remember that this home will be unlike any other in sentimental value. Plus, the home kit will provide you with the materials you need and a nice base line to start off on the right foot! This project is not impossible and when it is finished it will be well worth the work!

Stats: 24×50, 2,376 sq. ft. total living space, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, living room, dinning room, open porch (600 sq.ft.)
