Emily Ann York’s Stunning Barndominium On 20 Acres In Alabama


Nestled in the heart of North Alabama, Emily Ann York and her husband proudly present their dream barndominium, a labor of love they’ve called home since September 2021. 

This picturesque haven, meticulously crafted over nine months with personal dedication, offers a spacious 1872 sq ft of post-framed living space.

The home boasts three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a mudroom, a walk-in-linen closet, and a secure safe room. 

The York family enjoys serene mornings and evenings on the front and back porches and takes advantage of the attached garage, barn, and shop that grace this remarkable property. 

The inviting polar white siding, rugged galvalume roof, and timeless Louisville cut face stone from Centurion Stone envelop the home in rustic charm. 

Every detail has been lovingly attended to, with a warm Early American stain that graces the entire space. 

This fully furnished gem, featuring Emily’s custom-drawn floor plan, is more than a house; it’s a dream come true.


The home exudes rustic charm, thanks to its welcoming polar white siding, robust galvalume roof, and enduring Louisville cut face stone sourced from Centurion Stone.

The front porch showcases a stunning timber frame design finished in a rich Early American stain, adding to its aesthetic appeal.

The windows are professionally installed, with added 2×4 framing on the exterior and meticulously applied j-channel for a polished finish.

Here is a side view of the home with a single window.

This property features a spacious back porch measuring approximately 14 by 32 feet, offering ample space for relaxation and outdoor enjoyment.

Crafted from knotty alder wood, the doors, obtained from the prestigious Door Clearance Center, enhance the home’s rustic charm.

The front door exudes timeless elegance with an antique-style doorknob, complemented by high-quality hardware sourced from Nostalgic Hardware collection.

Living Area

The interior architecture shines with unique metal vaulted ceilings, reaching a peak height of 17 feet, while the side walls stand at a generous 10 feet.

This lovely home boasts porcelain wood-like tile flooring that adds a warm and elegant touch to the living space.

The spacious living area is furnished with a comfortable sectional couch, perfect for relaxation and gatherings around the inviting fireplace.

The fireplace itself features a charming brick accent.

The walls are tastefully painted in Agreeable Gray, creating a soothing atmosphere, while the ceiling gleams in a crisp Pure White, adding a sense of openness and brightness to the room.


The kitchen is seamlessly connected to the pantry and laundry room via convenient doors, providing easy access.

It’s thoughtfully situated next to the living area, ensuring a smooth flow for entertaining.

The kitchen boasts custom-built cabinets, offering both functionality and style. 

Both the pantry door and island are painted with a charming Jasper Stone Sherwin Williams color scheme, creating a harmonious design.

The spacious island measures 4 by 8 feet, providing ample workspace and a cozy spot for casual dining.

The island provides a generous 4-foot space from the oven, with room to comfortably seat four people.

The countertops are adorned with luxurious quartz Vicostone Misterio, adding a touch of elegance to the culinary space.

The pantry door was a unique find from a warehouse, where it once had a screen.

With a personal touch, the screen was replaced with glass, and the door was meticulously painted, adding character and charm to this practical space.

Dining Area

The dining area boasts a homeowner-built table that showcases a blend of rustic and modern aesthetics, creating a stunning centerpiece for gatherings.

Illuminating the space is a captivating chandelier that complements the overall decor beautifully.

Master Bedroom

Among the three bedrooms in this home, the master bedroom offers a cozy atmosphere with plush carpeting underfoot.

A ceiling fan ensures comfortable temperatures year-round while providing an elegant touch to the room.

The focal point is a charming rustic white-worn bed frame, adding character and warmth to this inviting space.

The master bedroom’s closet is enhanced with custom-built shelving, ensuring an organized and efficient storage solution for their belongings.

This custom-built shelving in the master bedroom closet is specifically designed to accommodate and neatly organize a substantial collection of shoes and other items.

Safe Room

The safe room is ingeniously located within the master closet, providing a secure and accessible refuge.

Master Bathroom

The master bathroom, one of two bathrooms in this home, features a 4 x 6 shower with the convenience of two corner benches placed in opposite corners for added comfort.

Dual shower heads provide a luxurious bathing experience.

The flooring is adorned with elegant hexagon tiles, crafted from high-quality ceramic tile sourced from Floor and Decor, enhancing the bathroom’s visual appeal and durability.

A stand-alone soaker tub is gracefully positioned next to a window, creating a serene and relaxing corner in the master bathroom.

This allows for a tranquil bathing experience while enjoying natural light and a pleasant view.

The sinks are thoughtfully positioned in front of each other on opposite sides, optimizing space and functionality.

Here is the second sink.

Adjacent to the shower, the toilet is discreetly enclosed by walls for added privacy in the master bathroom.

Overhead, convenient shelving provides a practical and organized space for toiletries and essentials.

Bathroom #2

Bathroom #2 follows a design reminiscent of the master bathroom, offering a shower/tub combination and the elegant hexagon floor tiles.

The vanity in this bathroom features a single sink, providing functionality and style in this well-appointed space.

Laundry Area

The laundry area is efficiently designed with a hanging rod positioned between cabinets, offering a convenient space for hanging clothes.

A practical wash tub sink enhances functionality, making laundry tasks easier.

Accessible from the hallway, it ensures ease of use and accessibility for the entire household.

Floor Plan

The floor plans, expertly crafted by Emily herself, served as the blueprint for the construction project.

The contractor was able to bring these plans to life with precision and skill, resulting in the beautiful home we see today.
