You've probably heard of condominiums, but what about barndominiums? Thanks to Morton Buildings, they're becoming a housing trend in North Texas. For over 15 years, the construction company has specialized in transforming ordinary barns into extravagant spaces. Often, these barndominiums are used as “hobby houses,” where people pay homage to their passions like big game hunting or car racing. For Paul and Judy Pogue, however, it's the site of their luxurious home.
Located in McKinney, Texas, the 6,600 square-foot steel structure looks like a conventional barn from the outside but is fully-furnished on the inside. The cozy dwelling now features hard wood walls and floors, several chandeliers, a bar, and multiple dining areas. Morton Buildings left the rafters and duct work exposed to provide an industrial feel for the airy, open space.
Before its transformation in 2001, the Pogue's barn was home to their champion steers. After seeing Morton Buildings work their magic on other places, the couple decided to make a change. Now, it highlights the incredible design possible of your average barn.
