    Catskill Mountains ~
    Jewett, New York

    The Somerset barn home is nestled in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains of New York state.  Owners Bob and Cathy found everything they were looking for in a Yankee Barn Home – the traditional values of post and beam, the character, ease of customization, open flowing spaces and tons of windows.

    Mountain Homes

    Orford, New Hampshire

    Post and beam construction has been synonymous with mountain architecture since its inception.  Not only do large timbers support the heavy winter snow load of mountain settings, they are also an essential element of the mountain-style look.  This timber frame style is often found lakeside or mountainside as it integrates beautifully with its natural surroundings.

    Rye Harbor ~
    Barrington, Rhode Island

    This Rhode Island home was built on one of the few remaining beachfront lots in the area.  The Yankee Barn Home had to work in terms of site positioning, exterior styling, environmental concerns and community regulations.  This home, found in the Yankee Barn Home plan library as the “Rye Harbor Cottage”, incorporates strong shingle style influences from the Victorian era.

    Cottages

    Northern New England

    Cottage living has become synonymous with a relaxed lifestyle that values family and being connected to the community.  Post and beam construction elevates the modern day bungalow to a whole new level.  With a post and beam frame, fewer interior walls are necessary as they do not provide structural support.  The layout of the interior is dictated by the homeowners’ wishes, not by the location of load bearing walls.

    Lake Winnipesaukee ~
    Sanbornton, New Hampshire

    This 17th Century historic cape needed just the right post and beam building to expand a growing family’s living space while being historically true to the original home.  The home is a post and beam and the addition needed to continue the aesthetic.  The skilled staff at Yankee Barn Homes worked with the homeowner to ensure their requirements were not only met, but exceeded.
