Post and beam homes are nothing new to this blog, but post and beam home additions are less often discussed. This does not make them any less spectacular, as you can see from the accompanying photography of Fieldview. This home was originally a 1980's Post Modern house. There was nothing special about it architecturally speaking. Truthfully, it was an eye sore, but...
Post and beam additions may not seem as exciting as our post and beam homes, but Fieldview will quickly change that perception. In our first article on Fieldview, Post and Beam Addition Drab to Fab, we featured renderings and floor plans of the mundane 1980s home and the vision YBH Creative Director, Jeffrey Rosen, had for the addition. The house itself was a mess but the location and architectural possibilities made this home a “diamond in the rough”. Enter Yankee Barn Homes.
The two-story addition houses the new kitchen/dining room. The addition is timbered, with multiple windows and doors. Off the kitchen is a one-story bay which will be used as a sun-room. The architectural language of the original house is repeated in the new design for continuity. The interior of the existing home was completely gutted (to the framework). The original living room is now a first floor master suite with closets, a large bath and separate study. The original kitchen /dining area is the new living room. An indoor/outdoor fireplace has been added to the living room floor plan. A bump out has been added to the front of the home to allow space for a new staircase and hallway. The second level, which originally housed a master with bath and 2 additional bedrooms, becomes 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and an upper hall reading space and laundry room. The new staircase has a traditional open style.
As post and beam additions go, this one is going to be a beauty. True to form, Jeffrey Rosen has thought of every detail and made sure to include them all in this home. If you’re considering an addition you could not go wrong working with Yankee Barn Homes. The knowledge and skill is second to none and the design creativity is endless. No matter how large or small, we can make your project shine!
