Amid a housing shortage and evolving preferences, Americans are turning to “barndominiums” or “barndos,” barns converted into homes for an affordable and customizable housing solution according to the recent report of The U.S. Sun. The trend gained popularity through HGTV’s “Fixer Upper,” featuring Chip and Joanna Gaines renovating a Texas barndominium. These barn-inspired homes offer a blank canvas, flexibility in design, and a chance to retreat from city life, making them a fashionable choice for millennials.
