The small barn home has been a popular topic at Yankee Barn Homes. We've received major interest from a number of potential clients regarding post and beam timber frame designs which incorporate all the bells and whistles YBH is known for, but within a smaller foot print. We've heard you and are excited to be expanding in the area of barn home designs at and under 2000 square feet.
Contemporary barn house The Tisbury, has been finished. We’ve chronicled the building of this hybrid Yankee Barn from the design stage to completion. We hope you enjoy our final post on this stunning barn home.
Contemporary Barn House
The Tisbury has an open concept floor plan. Coming in at 2983 square feet, the key element in this design is the “T” shape of the home. The top of the “T” consists of a timbered 1 ½ story mudroom, kitchen, dining and great room. The base of the “T” contains the entry, family room, staircase and master suite.
The design of the Tisbury is archetypal Yankee Barn Homes, with its roots planted firmly in classic New England barn style architecture. There is expansive use of glass for views and passive solar gain with a lofted post and beam frame anchoring spacious rooms. The style is one of open, relaxed areas with a contemporary edge. A neutral color palette sets the stage for modern furniture and fixtures. The staircase is a main focal point upon entrance. The upper level houses three bedrooms and two full baths.
The Tisbury floor plan is perfect for a family or an aging-in-place couple who might use the main level as primary living space, with the second level used when friends and family visit. If needed or wanted, we include plans for the lower level, which adds an additional 2000 square feet and allows for a media room, a gym, one bedroom with full bath and a bonus half bath. The pool house/garage has a full foundation for workshop and/or storage.
The Tisbury is currently on the Home Styles page of our website. Please follow this link to see more photos and downloadable floor plans.
