The Farm House of my Dreams?

At least it is when the weather is cold and nasty. Behold, the House-Barn:

Uncle Howard's Barn-Homes, "Great Western" floor plan:
76' x 80' Custom Great Western Barn and Home Conversion

4 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Baths, Office

Here is more details and photos about the "Great Western" model:

Barn Kits, Horse Barn Kits, Barn Home Kits

I told Pat and Andy about it at lunchtime, and how I thought it would be energy efficient, having everything under one roof. Pat said we would end up smelling like the livestock!

I was thinking, I could take care of the animals without having to go out in the rain. But the smell, that would be something to consider, especially in the summer.

If you look around their site, they have all sorts of designs for barns and buildings of many different sizes. Some are Barn-House combos, others are barn-like houses, or free standing barns, garages, or small multi-use buildings. Have a look around till you find something you like.

I love it! MAYBE no chickens beneath, but the below space would make a great garage.

Yes, the designs are customizable, so the barn space below could be used for office space, commercial space, garage, workshop, meeting hall... just about any thing you want.
