Whatever you want, this article includes some of the best layouts for your home.
Advantages Of 60×60 Barndo House Plans
There are plenty of reasons to choose a 60 x 60 barndo.
For example, it’s cost-effective, spacious, and still doesn’t take up too much room on your lot.
The 60 x 60 barndominium offers 3,600 square feet of floor space, giving you ample room to have a spacious home on just one level. That’s ideal if you’re looking for a family home, just prefer more space, or want a large garage and workshop.
In addition, it’s still compact enough to comply with nearly any city building regulations unless your lot is very small. That makes this an ideal size if you want plenty of space but still want to be conscious of how you’re using your lot.
Easy to Sell
The 60 x 60 barndo is the perfect size for a three-bedroom home. That’s ideal for most family homes. Therefore, it’s one of the easiest sizes to sell, because you have a good balance between cost and space.
Even if you don’t intend to sell your barndominium, that fact will positively affect the appraised home value and therefore your mortgage. And, if you do end up wanting to sell for whatever reason, you’ll have a home that’s most in-demand, so you should have no problems selling it quickly.
3,600 square feet is ideal for just about anything you might want. That means a large living space with 3-4 bedrooms.
It might also mean a large garage with a smaller living space. For example, the 60×60 is ideal for a large garage and a standard size home of 2,400-2,600 square feet.
It also gives you room to have big bedrooms, a large living area, and just about anything else you want. It’s extremely versatile and everything depends on your floor plan.
Of course, barndominiums don’t have load bearing interior walls, so you can always change things around later. However, picking a good floor plan from day one will always be the best option.
At 60 x 60, you’re balancing size and costs. However, 60 x 60 is also a very common size for a barndominium. This means you’ll easily be able to find prefabricated barndo kits in this size. That can drop your costs down to as little as $7 per square foot for the shell.
Most 60 x 60 barndos also minimize the number of corners. A square building means you’ll have fewer corners and therefore fewer costs. And, a square building means you minimize the amount of length for each wall, reducing costs to build.
That will, overall, give you a maximum of space for a minimum of costs.
Easy to Fit Onto a Lot
No matter where you’re living, you’ll want to consider how your home fits onto the lot. A square home reduces decision-making because you can easily situate it almost anywhere on your lot. That includes space around the home for parking, a lawn, and a walkway.
Of course, if you’re in an urban area, you’ll normally have to choose a different home layout as most residential lots in cities are about 50’ wide.
However, everywhere else, the square home is a great choice if you want simplicity when choosing how to build your home.
Commonly Available Building Kit
The 60 x 60 barndominium is a very popular building kit. This means it’s easy to find cost-effective prefabricated kits that are ready to ship.
You’ll also likely have more design options you can opt for without paying extra for custom design. That means you can reduce lead times for your order while adding customization without adding extra costs.
