Heidi and Todd's barndominium with a basment sits on 2 acres in Southern Indiana, along what used to be the Monon Railroad. The total cost to build was just shy of $390,000.00 and was completed in 2021.

Built as a "forever home", it features a completely wheelchair accessible ground level complete with a shower-room. The first floor consists of an open-concept living and kitchen area to the left, with a master suite, 2 bedrooms, and one bathroom to the right. Off the living room youll find a large deck spanning the entireity of the home.



Underground is a 1,500 sq ft walkout basement housing a gym and workshop. When guests come to town, namely their children, the basement converts to a spacious guest room with great views of the waterway and hot tub access.

Nestled along a quiet road, and adjoining vacant hunting property, Heidi and Todd have a little slice of paradise with all the peace a famiyl could dream of. Without the generousity of folks like Todd and Heidi, this series wouldnt be possible. Huge thanks to them for their time and willingness to share!
