Mid Century Modern architecture in the American iteration, came about after World War II as a means to bring modernism to the post-war suburbs. Emphasizing structures with expansive glass and open floor plans, the style’s main goal was to open up interior spaces and bring the outdoors in.

This just in… YBH builds barn houses 365 days a year. A prime example is The Cabot, a large barn style home currently going up in the midst of one very cold New Hampshire winter-wonderland. Located in close proximity to the White Mountains range, you know there is serious winter weather happening this time of year. No problem!
As the story of barn houses often goes, The Cabot is the end result of loving the idea of living in a barn, while not wanting to live in an actual barn. Our owners wanted the lifestyle a barn home affords but not the experience of rehabbing one. They turned to Yankee Barn Homes and we helped them design The Cabot. Their lot is perfect for a barn house plan as it affords expansive views of the mountains; YBH is a master of the “wall-of-windows” technique to take advantage of such views.
The Cabot has an open-concept floor plan. Features include a master bedroom walk-in closet located within the interior of the master bedroom suite, and a second level “cat-walk” style bridge allowing views into the lower level from either side. Additionally, well positioned windows afford loads of natural light and spectacular views.
Please check back often, as we’ll be following progress of The Cabot and other new barn houses over the coming months. We’ll be sure to update you as news and photos arrive! 2015 is looking like a great year at Yankee Barn Homes!
