Sara Wall’s extraordinary blue barndominium is a testament to dedication and ingenuity.
Built within three months in 2020, during pregnancy and the arrival of a new family member, this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home spans 1,240 square feet, with a 31 x 40 footprint and 6/12 pitch, boasting 11-foot side walls.
Crafted without blueprints, this innovative creation was born from Sara’s vision. Her husband, who specializes in metal buildings and barndo shells, designed and constructed it.
While it served their family well, they’ve moved on to a larger space and embarking on a new barndo adventure in Texas.
Reflecting on their journey, explore the unique features of this remarkable build below!

The Wall Family’s Future Plans
Sara’s vision for their new barndominium home involves several enhancements for comfort and functionality.
She plans to include more and larger rooms, prioritizing individual closets in each room, especially for the kids’ bedroom and a more spacious bathroom.
Sara also intends to incorporate heated flooring, expand the pantry, and ensure ample space around the stove. She adores large windows and plans to implement them generously.
Additionally, she aims for over 3,000 square feet in this new space, creating an area much larger than the 1,240 square feet of this blue barndo.
Sara desires a round dining table and a booth-style seating arrangement near the island for a cozy dining experience.
Furthermore, she and her husband plan to add the gable immediately instead of delaying it for later modifications.
