The barn house loft at Moose Ridge Lodge combines two of my favorite things, a lofted ceiling and a space that is designed for multi-use. I call it a “bonus room”. Lofts come in all shapes and sizes and may be configured anyway you choose. Need an office? Check. A bunk-room for the grandchildren or a craft space for yourself? Check and check.
The barn house loft at Moose Ridge Lodge is a well thought-out space, set up to be used in a number of different ways. It’s a TV room, it’s the kids play room, and it provides space for some quiet time on a low-key day. Moose Ridge Lodge is a multi-generation vacation home for an active family. Adults and children flock here on weekends and holidays for some good old-fashioned outdoor fun, knowing they have a great space in which to gather at the end of the day. The loft provides a room away from the crowd while also allowing interaction. It is also popular as the perfect place for the kids to play (within close ear-shot of the adults) while parents are one level down, relaxing and preparing dinner after a busy day.
The color palette for the loft is in keeping with the other living spaces in the lodge. The walls are done in Benjamin Moore’s Kingsport Gray, Benjamin Moore’s Simply White for the trim, and Min-Wax stain in Special Walnut is used on the post and beam frame. The colors are rich and unifying, as this is not a large home. The lofted ceiling and open post and beam structure make the 1657 square footage seem much larger than it actually is. Speaking of which, how about that view from the loft out the angled wall of windows? Yes, please!

Wow this looks amazing! Love that lofted ceiling.
Thanks, Kyle. Moose Ridge Lodge is one of our most popular smaller post and beam homes – easy to see why! BeamBabe
Can that be scaled down to around 1500 sf? Is engineering part of the package if and order is placed?
Hi Mike, Thanks for your inquiry. Every Yankee Barn Home is custom so yes, it could be scaled down. The current design is approximately 1,650 so we could simply shrink the footprint, square off the prow, etc.
Design services, engineering, shipping and a Yankee Barn Site Supervisor to act as a laborer with your GC and oversee the erection process are all included in our custom Shell Packages. Engineering and shipping would be determined once the design is finalized as both are specific to the build location.
If you have additional questions please call the office at 1-800-258-9786.
What type of wood was used for beams and stairs? I love it!
The stairs are constructed from hard yellow pine and the post and beam frame is Douglas fir. Best, Beambabe

Hello, could this be built into an upward sloping lot?
Absolutely – the current iteration IS built on a steeply sloping lot. :)
As shown, what’s the footprint length and width?
I’m not certain of the exact length & width of Moose Ridge and do not currently have access to that information. Please email us at [email protected] or call us at 800-258-9786 for more information. Thank you.
