We are often asked about building a Yankee Barn long distance. After 50 years in the home building industry and having built homes all over the U.S for both clients and ourselves, we speak from experience. “Yes, you can build with Yankee Barn Homes long distance.”
Yankee Barn Homes has the capacity to meet with builders and clients via the web; therefore, in-person meetings are not always necessary. We have had the occasional client we never meet in person.
Yankee Barn has a customer rep team, a design team, an engineering team and a production team. As the house moves along in the process, you become accustomed to speaking with staff in each department. We have had clients tell us they are a bit saddened when the process is over as they feel the YBH staff has become extended family.
YBH has an excellent reputation among general contractors. They are likely to give us a great review after working on one of our projects, even when we’ve not had prior experience together. Hazley Builders of West Chester, Pa had this to say after their first build with YBH (they have since done more builds with us): “The relationship with Yankee Barn was great. Everyone was easy to work with, organized, and friendly. This made the building process much easier,” said Mike Hazley. “While building a post and beam is different than traditional construction, with Yankee Barn’s detailed plans and thorough organization, the process went smoothly.”
“We built our first Yankee Barn in January, during one of the coldest winters on record. We were enclosed in two weeks. We started and finished the home in the time-frame given us.”
“A Yankee Barn supervisor came on site to help us put the shell together. This is a very important part of the process and well worth the cost (note: 1 YBH supervisor is included in the price of the shell package). The supervisor is used to working with the materials and the system.”
“The key is to plan ahead. We spent time working through the plans before building. We also visited the YBH factory and show home in New Hampshire, and saw a couple of houses under construction.”
