Design Concepts
“Barndo” with pull-thru garage(s) and moving walls

The 4 plans above depict a steel walled and framed Barndominium utilizing slide rails to make walls movable/adjustable after construction, creating flexible spaces that can change purpose.
Black walls: permanent/fixed
Gray walls: sliding/mobile
Yellow dotted lines: slide rails
Light red: doors
Dark red: heat appliances
Dark blue: water appliances
Light blue: glass shower doors
Green: change in elevation (stairs)

The inspiration of this plan is maximization of functionality for COH’s always-evolving needs. This house could be a content and materials development headquarters, ideal for day use activity and programming. This house could be a foster system holding center equipped for overnight emergency placements of youth in transition. This house could be a conference/event center, or any number of other things because it’s ready for “anything.” Income from the sale of OAKS: A Third Year Story goes to this project.
