New Barn House Design and Floor Plans: The Suffolk

Red, yellow, green, or weathered, a barn house may come in all these colors and more; but what about black? Mentioned in a recent post, black barns are becoming increasingly popular in the United States as a result of borrowing a time-honored look and tradition from Europe; particularly the United Kingdom. Since my last post on black barn homes, Barns and Barn Homes: The Beauty of Black, there’s been a great response from many of you about the newest in our barn house design series, The Suffolk. Today I’ll not only provide renderings of the rectangular-shaped barn home, I’ll also show you floor plans. If I didn’t already live in a Yankee Barn carriage house, this post and beam would be on the short list of YBH houses I’d consider building. Not too big, not too small, this home comes in at 2,900 square feet. Just right for a couple of empty nesters, or a family of five! barn house

The Suffolk Barn House Design and Renderings

The beauty of this newest design from Yankee Barn Homes lies in the shape of this barn house: it’s a rectangle with no bump-outs or ells. This makes for not only a less expensive build, but a more efficient use of both the heating and cooling of the home. These are both considerations everyone encounters when building!

Notice the important elements that make this barn traditional: inset front doors with the sliding barn doors as outer storm doors, and the smaller “barn windows” used on the second level. Look closely and you’ll another oft-used element: board and baton siding.

From the back, traditional elements mix beautifully with contemporary large-scale windows and a lower level which utilizes standard windows for a strong natural light source.


The Suffolk Barn House Floor Plans

The floor plans for The Suffolk are open and straight forward. The first floor is two-thirds family “living” space with the master suite located to one side of the barn house. The second level has a balcony which may be utilized a number of ways and three bedrooms (two with a shared bath). Notice the roof line is open to the cupola for added natural light in the balcony area.
