Barn House Multipurpose Room

When planning your barn house, or any house, be sure to consider the best way to completely utilize the third bedroom (or office space). Should you be an empty nester and into a smaller home, it could be your only guest room, but that’s okay, too. The point is to make the room work for a number of occasions, not just the fairly rare overnight guest or the less-than-daily-used office space. Combining the room into a multipurpose space where a bed for guests, a desk for administrative work anda crafting space (as just one example) can all peacefully co-exist in the same room is the objective.
