Arlie Mayes

Arlie is our senior editor who’s been working with us from the beginning of Barndominiumideas. He becomes a passionate lover of barndominiums after watching the popular TV series Fixer Upper.

From his childhood, he dreamed of a different lifestyle and he found it in barndominiums. He just wants to escape from his suburban life and barndominiums help him to accomplish that.

We didn’t hire John just because he loves barndominiums, we hired him because of his huge knowledge about it. He spent a good amount of time in his life researching and learning about barndominiums.

If you would like to contact John, you can email us through the contact us forum and we will make a schedule for that.


Linda And Richard McFarland

Linda And Richard McFarland dream to build a barndominium in their empty property of the East Village. It’s been 4 years since they got married but sadly they don’t own a house.

As they don’t have enough capital to build a traditional house they look for alternatives. On the other hand, they don’t want to take out a house loan as they want to lead a debt-free lifestyle and a barndominium makes their dream true.

You’ll be surprised to know that their whole property cost only $140,000 only which is far cheaper than a traditional one.

You can check the photos of their home on our site Barndominiumideas.com.

When I first set out looking for more information on barndos, I was a bit confused. I quickly realized that there was a dearth of information on barndominiums online. From finding a barndominium floor plan to finding a local builder, to kit providers –no one was writing about the barndominium.

The Story

There’s a sweet story behind Barndominium Ideas. In the beginning, I actually didn’t have any idea about barndominiums like many others. I got the idea about the barndominium from the TV show  Fixer Upper. After watching barndominiums in Fixer Upper, I fell in love with it. And, it influences me to know about it.

But, when I start to research it on the internet I found very little information about barndos. That’s what influences me to create this site and share my research and findings with the broader audience. Here on this site Barndominium Ideas, you’ll get information about barndominium floor plans, kit providers, and the local builder, etc.

To provide all this information all alone is quite impossible for me. So, I look for more people who have the same interest in barndominium as me. After doing an intensive survey on different social media platforms like Facebook groups  I’m able to find a community who’re enthusiasts about barndominium.

All the resources you’re getting “Barndominium Ideas” are the result of extensive research on barndominiums. With a dedicated team of enthusiasts and energetic people, I’m working here in Barndominium Ideas to educate, inform and inspire people to build their dream Barndominium.
