Our Yankee Barn tea house has served a number of purposes over the four years since it was built. Along with a being a wonderful “outdoor room” that sits alongside our brook, the post and beam tea house has served as 1) a quiet place in our Zen garden to get away from it all; 2) a “reading room” for lazy summer afternoons; 3) a beautiful setting for a cocktail party after our daughter’s wedding; 4) the subject of New Hampshire Home magazine, including the magazine cover!; and now 5) my husband’s Zen Garden Tai chi Studio. Yes, I said Tai chi studio. Three days a week, at various times throughout the day, off my husband goes to our tea house, in the midst of our beautiful Zen garden, to tech Tai chi. I can not think of a more perfect place to learn this peaceful form of martial arts. It has recently been discovered and reported that doing Tai chi will actually reverse or ward off the debilitating effects of Alzheimer‘s and dementia! It has been proven to increase the size and working ability of the Hippocampus, the part of the brain attacked by Alzheimer’s disease. This being said, please take a look at how our tea house has served our mind-body well over the years.
The Many Faces of Our Yankee Barn Tea House
We are so very glad we chose to build this outdoor room. The tea house has provided us countless hours of peace, pleasure and calm over the past years, and will certainly continue to do so in the future. We couldn’t be happier we chose to build this beautiful post and beam structure by Yankee Barn Homes.
