In the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of western Virginia, ensconced on the side of a mountain is the cutest post and beam home. Built by Yankee Barn Homes and coming in at a conservative 2200 square feet, this timber frame is my latest crush!
Yet to be professionally photographed, the pictures shown here are ones sent in by the home owners. I promise to do my utmost to get interior pictures so we can all see the inside.
The side driveway view of this home accentuates its compact size. Smaller should by no means be misconstrued as lacking. This home has all the finer features we’ve come to expect in a Yankee Barn home; in a smaller footprint!
Look at the view from the wrap-around deck! The Blue Ridge Mountains may be seen from just about every window and/or deck of this home. Even the drab surroundings of late fall can not lessen the spectacular scenery offered by this site.
The picture above shows several things: 1) the beautiful stone veneer on the basement walls; 2) the timber frame architectural accents at the peak of the gable; 3) the beautiful glass solarium dining room area; and 4) the addition of an extended deck off the side of the home. The deck is being extend to incorporate more usable outdoor space as this site is so steep, the topography did not afford a flat yard. Therefore, the homeowners did the next best thing by creating one in the form of a deck!
