Single story floor plans are a very popular option for many of Yankee Barn’s clients. However, this does not mean a sacrifice in any architectural features or type of space requirements you might need. As with multiple level homes, YBH can create a floor plan that is just right for you. We are a custom home and design build firm and, as such, we cater to individual taste in all aspects of the build, including layout. This is why each Yankee Barn you see is unique; you may use a floor plan we have and make it your own, or design from scratch.
Today Post and Beam Living features a new plan called The Ashuelot Lodge. Built by an empty nest couple desiring single story floor plans for themselves, the house also includes lower level guest space/bedrooms for those times when family and friends visit. Built into the side of a slopping lot, the lodge design is comprised of 2092 sq ft of single story living with 637 sq ft on the upper level for storage and hobby space, and a lower level for guests which measures 1767 sq ft.
The main floor has everything the couple desires for their living purposes. A master bedroom suite with master bath, walk-in closets and a laundry room reside at one end of the house. In the middle there’s a lofted great room with a wall of windows to take advantage of a beautiful view. On the left end is an open concept kitchen/dining room area. All of these spaces open onto a gorgeous post and beam porch. There’s also a mud room with an attached breezeway and garage. The upper level is storage space and a hobby room.
The lower level is for added space when company visits. Two bedroom suites, each with a private bath and walk-in closet, bookend the home. The middle space is for F.U.N. – a large family room and bar area for entertaining in style (includes a half-bath). This level opens onto a screened-in porch that runs the width of the house.
We are anxiously awaiting the completion of this home. If you’re looking for single story floor plans, you won’t want to miss seeing this house take shape, so stay tuned; it’s going to be a beauty.
