Jeffrey Rosen: Creative Director at Yankee Barn Homes
The Tate Barn
“The Tate Barn, in East Hampton, New York, has to be my favorite! Simply because it was the start of my romance with post and beam, and with Yankee Barn Homes, itself. Who would suspect from a random Internet search, followed by quick trip up to the Grantham plant, that 3 years later I would be Creative Director at YBH, as well as on my fifth YBH build. I blame it all on the warmth and professionalism of the Yankee Barn team!
Today, we at Yankee Barn can design you anything, we still embrace our routes of post and beam, but bring us a thought and we will run with it. Ask me next year, and I will answer post and beam modern!”
Chris Sevigny: Director of Architectural Engineering at Yankee Barn Homes
The Beacon Carriage House
“Four words describe my favorite Yankee Barn. The Ultimate Man Cave!
It boasts a hardy Frame and blends many different building materials together to obtain very nice architectural details.
The drive in folding glass door is super cool.
It was also a fun project to work on.
Coolest workshop I’ve seen.”
Jon Sevigny: Sr Designer for Architectural Engineering at Yankee Barn Homes
The Woodstock Cottage
“One of my favorite Yankee Barn Homes is an Arts & Crafts style cottage nestled in the White Mountains of NH. I love the exterior detailing & the mix of different siding materials. The front porch is the perfect place for relaxing & enjoying the mountain views.”
Jay Fountain: Architectural Engineering at Yankee Barn Homes
The Little Compton Yankee Barn
“I was asked to choose and write a few sentences about my favorite Yankee Barn, not an easy thing for me to do. Deciding on my favorite was the easy part; however this house deserves better than a few sentences. I wanted to say “Just look at it”. This house sits right on the ocean in Rhode Island and although it dwarfs most of the houses around it, it still looks like it belongs right there. It was designed with the owners’ children and grand children in mind with a bunk room for the grand kids above the garage. On good days you can see Martha’s Vineyard from the top of the lighthouse, and there are always large ships visible in the water. There are way too many features of the house to mention, so just take a look at it for your selves.”
Jennifer Hastings: Customer Rep/Admin Assistant at Yankee Barn Homes
The Carolina Yankee Barn
“My favorite YBH combines the Carolina and Horse Barn frames. The Carolina Frame encloses the Great Room, dining area and kitchen and the Horse Barn Frame is used to house the master bedroom suite, office, and garage on the first level with guest quarters on the second floor. Along with the country setting and stunning views, I am drawn to the mixture of materials used on the exterior.”
