Stone Mountain barn house is a new design by Yankee Barn Homes. It is an excellent example of the practical application of our "custom design" feature. Let me explain. The owners of Stone Mountain were inspired by a YBH design, The Cabot. They liked everything about The Cabot, but knew there were a few features they'd like to change. No Problem. We do this type of thing every day at Yankee Barn. It's just one of the many qualities which make us stand out from other home-build companies. Our skilled engineering staff meets with each client and spends considerable time going over all aspects of your design. Stone Mountain has a traditional barn home exterior encapsulating a 21st Century barn house interior. An open floor plan with lofted post and beam architecture...
When planning your barn house, or any house, be sure to consider the best way to completely utilize the third bedroom (or office space). Should you be an empty nester and into a smaller home, it could be your only guest room, but that’s okay, too. The point is to make the room work for a number of occasions, not just the fairly rare overnight guest or the less-than-daily-used office space. Combining the room into a multipurpose space where a bed for guests, a desk for administrative work anda crafting space (as just one example) can all peacefully co-exist in the same room is the objective.

Lastly, if any of you are avid sewers/crafters, check out this great blog I happened upon the other day: Sew Many Ways. This link features a blogger named Karen and photos (like the one below) of her creatively arranged “craft room”. What a great use for an old hutch!
