Overview of The Aspen Plan
The Aspen plan is an incredible barndominium, merging the classic southern home and the southern coastal farmhouse with the barndo concept. It looks really cool from the outside. You have a giant front covered porch, perfect for sitting in the rocking chair, rocking with the wife, looking out over the front yard. You also have the big stained beams with the brick wrapped around the bottom that gives it that nice southern elegant charm. Then you have a featured double entry door that leads into an open concept living room, kitchen, and dining room area. That space is 21 feet wide and runs the full 34 ft length of the building. The ceiling height inside of the Aspen is going to be right at 19 foot eight inches to the bottom of the ridge. So you have a massive open gathering area right in the center, which is pretty common for all The Barndo Co plans. That’s the style that we always go with.
Main Living Area
If you make your way to the right into the primary bedroom, as you begin to approach in the hallway, there’s a powder room for guests. Then you can enter into the primary bedroom with a huge walk-in closet, oversized master bath, with soaking tub and separate walk-in shower, dual vanity, and a linen closet. If you make your way across the living room to the left wing of the house, you’ll be greeted with big barn doors that open up and lead into a separate living area for the children or can be used as a guest wing of the home. It’s a play area that is 23 feet long by nine and a half feet wide. So big area there for the kids to have their toys, have a lounge, have a couch and a TV hangout area, or a good homework area. It’s a place where you can have separation from your main living room to a kid’s wing. In that wing, you have three attached bedrooms. So bedroom two, three, and four are all in that side wing with an independent bath that services those bedrooms with the dual vanities as well.
Kitchen / Pantry
On the rear of the home, you have your walk-in pantry, which is good size operating butler pantry. You have a landing zone just off the kitchen for collecting all that paperwork, mail, school, homework, all the errands, and things to do. Then you head into the laundry room where you have the mud room bench with the built in locker. So you can grab all the kids’ clothing, their book bags, and their shoes when they come in from school or they’re heading to soccer practice.
Mud Room / Laundry
In the laundry room, you do have your washer/dryer as well as a working surface with a built in laundry sink.
Attached to this house is a standard two car garage. The two car garage could be converted into an open air carport. It could be enlarged to be a larger workshop. It could be converted into a two to four car garage with virtually little modification. If you can dream it, we can build it.
The best part about the Aspen is as you move out to the rear of the home, you’re greeted with the same covered porch on the rear as you are on the front of the home. So you have a huge area for outdoor dining, grill, hangout, outdoor kitchen, or just a cool place to hang out with the family. The Aspen overall is 100% the ultimate family home.
