Small barn home design continues to be extremely popular at Yankee Barn. There are a number of reasons for this trend, not the least among them the realization that at some point in our lives, scaling back and downsizing is not only necessary, it’s downright appealing. However, we of a certain age are not the only ones looking to downsize and live within a smaller footprint. If you watch HGTV you probably already know about the number of shows featuring young people living in smaller dwellings.
While Walden Pond would not be classified as a tiny home, at 1,467 square feet the design definitely qualifies as a small barn home. The icing on the cake is this design has all the perks one expects from a larger post and beam house. There are 3 bedrooms – the master is on the first level – 2 full baths and a lofted ceiling in the living and dining area. There’s even a small reading loft overlooking the great room. This small barn home design is also appealing to those looking to build a second home. The footprint is a rectangle; known to be the most efficient in both cost effectiveness and heating/cooling expense. At YBH most of the shell build process takes place in our factory, translating to a shorter up and enclosed time on site and far less construction site waste.
If the idea of a small barn home appeals but this isn’t quite the right design for you, there are options. We are a custom build company which means we build the design you want, not the design we create. Look on the YBH website (specifically, see The Mont Calm) and be sure to check out our Pinterest board dedicated to the small barn home, Small Barn House Designs.
