Red, yellow, green, or weathered, a barn house may come in all these colors and more; but what about black? Mentioned in a recent post, black barns are becoming increasingly popular in the United States as a result of borrowing a time-honored look and tradition from Europe; particularly the United Kingdom. Since my last post on black barn homes, Barns and Barn Homes: The Beauty of Black, there’s been a great response from many of you about the newest in our barn house design series, The Suffolk. Today I’ll not only provide renderings of the rectangular-shaped barn home, I’ll also show you floor plans. If I didn’t already live in a Yankee Barn carriage house, this post and beam would be on the short list of YBH houses I’d consider building. Not too big, not too small, this home comes in at 2,900 square feet. Just right for a couple of empty nesters, or a family of five!
The Suffolk Barn House Design and Renderings
The beauty of this newest design from Yankee Barn Homes lies in the shape of this barn house: it’s a rectangle with no bump-outs or ells. This makes for not only a less expensive build, but a more efficient use of both the heating and cooling of the home. These are both considerations everyone encounters when building!
The Suffolk Barn House Floor Plans
The floor plans for The Suffolk are open and straight forward. The first floor is two-thirds family “living” space with the master suite located to one side of the barn house. Alternate plans include a master bedroom suite with laundry room (not pictured). The second level has a balcony which may be utilized a number of ways and three bedrooms (two with a shared bath). Notice the roof line is open to the cupola for added natural light in the balcony area.
