 Yankee Barn House Staircases

The layout and placement of a staircase in a barn house, as in any house,  depends on the floor plan and traffic flow desired by the homeowners. Thus staircases often come about not as a primary feature of a home, but as a secondary consideration. However, this does not mean they are not a primary concern. Figuring out where you’re staircases will go, how many you’ll need and what they will look like (straight, turned, spiral), will be one of the first decisions you’ll make when planning your new home. The following photos will help you see how various Yankee Barn homeowners have used their staircases as both a utilitarian necessity and an architectural asset.
