An Overview of The Spruce Floor Plan
The Spruce is the perfect Barngalow for any situation, whether it’s a guest house, a vacation home, a lake house, a tiny Airbnb rental, or a guest cottage. With it being a small barndominium floor plan, It’s perfect to add on to any other Barndo Co Plan as a separate mother-in-law suite or guest home as well.

This plan has two bedrooms, a full-size bathroom, a separate laundry room with the ability to add an additional half bath inside of the laundry room. You can also add features like a loft or an additional upstairs bedroom. Other add-ons to The Spruce Plan would be a detached or an attached garage or carport, a detached or attached shop, a full wraparound porch as well as a rear porch.

Roofing and exterior siding. The standard roofing and exterior siding options on the Barndo Co Barndominiums is a 26-gauge steel, tough-rib, mechanically-fastened material. These panels come three feet wide with a 3/4-inch rib every nine inches. They’re mechanically fastened to your home with a screw, with an armor cap on the screw to protect that screw. The screws are the same color as the metal you choose for your siding or your roof, so it gives a seamless and flawless design. Your color options are plentiful, from galvulum to black metal, white metal, as well as reds and blues. Other siding selections would include Masonite siding, Hardie board siding, vinyl siding, brick and/or stone, as well as the ability to provide a wainscoting of brick or stone to any siding selection.
In order to upgrade your siding from our standard metal siding, it is required that we sheath your home with a plywood material beforehand. So in addition to any cost upgrades for the material of the siding, you would also have the cost upgrade of the sheathing. All of our barndominiums are wrapped in the highest quality material. We use type R high performance house wrap for every single project we touch. Roofing options are as well the 26 gauge, tough rib steel panels, but they can be upgraded to a standing seam steel in 24 gauge steel as well as 26 gauge steel. You also have the ability to put on a custom slate roof, an asphalt shingle roof, a copper roof, or any other type of composite material roof that you would prefer.

We also offer a full line of mahogany doors, mahogany doors with glass, solid mahogany doors, that can be stained to match your porch columns or left raw and clear still for a light wood finish.
