We live in our barn. Spouse's idea - he hated it at first, but the more finished it becomes, the more he likes it. Odor if only ever a problem on hot, hot days when stalls by our bedroom need to be cleaned.

Rodents... We have the occasional mouse, but between traps and barn cats, it really is not often.

Fire risk terrifies me, however, we have an emergency ladder under our bedroom window. Also have sheet/pillowcase plan to lower our dogs down.

We really like it, especially because it gives us the opportunity to hear pony problems almost as soon as they occur... We know the difference between a banging bucket, a typical wall bang and a panic/abnormal sound. Luckily, we have not had too many episodes to discern the difference, but after checking ALLLLLL sounds when we first moved in, we got the hang of it. The horses really aren't that noisy. :) Well, most of them... We can tellllllllll when a cribber needs his collar tightened, lol.

Wink reply to home barn

I dated a lady some years back that had a home with a barn hooked on the back.It was what we call a slab house. It sits on a slab of concrete with the back wall made of concrete blocks.This made a fire break between the house and barn.She had what we call a mud room that you would come into from the barn.Never would have know there was a barn on the back of the house if you did not know it.
