Exterior Doors for Barn Homes

Exterior doors for barn homes serve two primary purposes: they allow passage from the outdoors in (or vise versa), and they keep the elements at bay. While all doors perform these tasks, the number of different styles they affect is vast. The appearance of the barn home door is equally important to the job it performs and, fortunately, there are many style choices when it comes to choosing the barn door look that’s right for your home. At Yankee Barn Homes, we have built homes utilizing barn doors of all types and styles for well over forty years. We have a large photo gallery for you to peruse. Here are but few to whet your appetite. Should you like to see more, please visit our galleries on the YBH website. barn homes

Door Styles for Barn Homes

These doors are all on barn homes, however, as you’ll see from the photos, barn style homes come in many shapes, sizes and architectural styles. While the sliding barn door is indeed very popular (as it should be), there are certainly many other types of doors to be found here.

As barn homes are often large rectangles, their entryways need to be correct in scale. This home manages the front door scale beautifully with an in-set arched double door entry.

    we are hoping to open a Barn Wedding Venue in Arizona. I have been looking for plans that I could adapt to work for us. I think I’m looking for a gambrel roof style, because I need to have a partial upstairs with as much room as possible. I need the main floor to be large enough to have an office, a kitchen, public restrooms that are handicapped accessible, and enough open space to hold a ceremony for 150-170 people, or that same amount seated at tables for receptions and celebrations. I hope to have a large sliding barn door that would open to allow for bigger groups to attend on the outdoor patio. I grew up in the midwest and spent every summer on farms of my cousins. They had beautiful barns, but I don’t know anything about building one. I do remember my uncle saying that a post and beam barn was the cadillac of barns. I could use any info you might be able to send my way. Thanks so much, I really appreciate your time in this!
