Post and beam great rooms are the most photographed rooms in timber frame homes. The great room is often the best place to highlight the beautiful timbers and overall style of the home. Yankee Barn Homes has designed a wide variety of great rooms. Some have vaulted ceilings, some do not; some are very spacious vertically, some are more horizontally oriented. All are a major focal point of the home.
