The Yankee Barn Homes Build Process – Phase I

The Yankee Barn Homes Build Process – Phase I

The other day I had a neighbor stop by our Yankee Barn carriage house to ask about the Yankee Barn Homes build process. It seemed he’d been passing by for some time and got to wondering how our home came into being four years ago. He’d watched as the lot was cleared, the driveway put in and the foundation installed. Then he became completely intrigued when the structure arrived and began to go up. He was mesmerized and amazed by the quickness of the project and started wondering how this entire process worked. He asked me to please tell him about it; and I did.

This experience made me think, “I wonder how many other people might wonder about the build process of a Yankee Barn Home?” Then it hit me – what a great blog post this would make! So, here it is, from start to finish, right from the mouths of the people who know it best; the staff at Yankee Barn Homes (and me). Should you be considering a build now or in the future, this piece should answer questions, help in understanding what happens and when, and “Demystify” the process.

Our carriage house main level is actually on the upper floor. We have fantastic views of our five acre grounds!

 

1. At Yankee Barn Homes, you’ll enjoy an interactive design and build experience. This is to say, the client will be very involved through the entire process. The client begins by speaking with (by phone or on-line) with a skilled customer service representative. The representative will have as many conversations with the client as necessary to help define what best suits their needs. This usually includes discussions about size, style, budget, etc.

The style of our Yankee Barn is Victorian. I’ve grown up and spent the majority of my adult life in New England. I have been heavily influenced by it’s architecture, so it was not much of a stretch when my husband and I designed our home.

 

2. The client is then assigned to a personal “Design Manager” who will guide them through the rest of the process: site placement, exterior design, roof lines, window placement, porches, decks, siding, trim, basic landscape.

The placement of our house was dictated by the site. There is a natural rise where the house is located. Our landscaping was also dictated by the the site; the stone walls and natural plantings are in keeping with our New England style barn.

 

Please check back for our next post, The Yankee Barn Build Process: Phase II, as the remaining steps in the build process will be completed and you’ll see photos of homes as they go from being conceptualized in 3-D (you can “walk” through your home before it’s been built!), to the raising of the timber frame, and ending with the completed structure. It’s quite amazing!
