Kayla Stone Harper’s Exceptional Barndominium In North Alabama: A Unique Build With Custom Designed Plans


In pursuing a dream dwelling, the Harper family expertly drew up their own floor plans to create a simple and beautiful space, embracing a minimalist and sleek aesthetic in their North Alabama home.

This barndominium showcases a remarkable post and frame construction.

This spacious dwelling encompasses 2,000 square feet of heated living space complemented by an 862-square-foot shop/garage. 

With every detail thoughtfully considered, they have skillfully utilized every inch of space, eliminating the need for hallways. 

The exterior boasts charcoal siding, accented by black trim and crowned with a galvalume roof.

The expansive front porch spans 8 feet in depth and 50 feet long, while the back porch provides a generous 12-foot depth and stretches to 50 feet. 

Inside, the stained and sealed concrete floors exude contemporary elegance. The choice of spray foam insulation ensures both comfort and efficiency. 

As they settle in, the rooms gradually come to life, with mirrors, blinds, and curtains yet to be added. 

With a generous porch space of 8 feet at the front and 10 feet at the back, this unique barndominium stands majestically on its 5-acre plot of land, promising a lifestyle like no other.


The home features charcoal metal with black trim and a galvalume roof, while Chimney Rock brick forms the lower foundation.
