The barn house staircase is as individual as the barn house itself, and at Yankee Barn Homes we’ve seen some pretty spectacular staircases. From the type of staircase, i.e. straight, turned with landing(s), spiral, painted, stenciled or “other”; all of the following have unique features. If you’re considering building, this is a great place to get ideas on an oft overlooked architectural feature of the home; one which you’ll use multiple time each day. Make it special!
Yankee Barn House Staircases
The layout and placement of a staircase in a barn house, as in any house, depends on the floor plan and traffic flow desired by the homeowners. Thus staircases often come about not as a primary feature of a home, but as a secondary consideration. However, this does not mean they are not a primary concern. Figuring out where you’re staircases will go, how many you’ll need and what they will look like (straight, turned, spiral), will be one of the first decisions you’ll make when planning your new home. The following photos will help you see how various Yankee Barn homeowners have used their staircases as both a utilitarian necessity and an architectural asset.
