Barndominiums are not only spacious and cost effective, they are one of most flexible house plans due to their open concept floor plan while still maintaining that 'rustic', homely charm.

However, if you have been in the market to buy a barndominium, you might have noticed that most barndominium house plans are quite big. This is mainly due to two reasons:

But, don't worry. With their increased popularity, more iterations of barndos are coming out everyday. That includes small barndominium plans. In this article, you will find a list of the best small barndominium floor plans available on Archival Designs.
