It used to be the term prefab home carried a bit of a stigma. The image of an out-of-the-box kit that, when put together, created a basic home. But at Yankee Barn Homes, our new technologies, new factory techniques, and better ways to build and join larger sections, place us at the top of the list of complete customization in prefab housing.
The Dunbar Hill Cottage exemplifies how today’s prefab homes have created an option for building a design which, by any other means of construction, would take more time, not allow for the options a post and beam build affords, and creates a home that is beautiful, green and cost-effective.
Today, the term prefab has come to mean a construction approach, rather than a style of home. The idea is to create custom-designed pieces of the home, pre-built in a quality controlled indoor environment using sophisticated manufacturing systems, then deliver them to the job site via large sections, set them on a prepped foundation and finish with new and traditional building techniques.
Yankee Barn Homes has been involved in the post and beam prefab home industry since 1969. We’ve made it our mission to create quality custom homes by combining the finest materials and craftsmanship with the efficiency and economy prefab construction offers.
Our company begins each project by creating a unique home plan based upon the individual buyer’s needs and tastes. All YBH homes are built for energy efficiency while creating stunning one-of-a-kind post and beam designs. Yankee Barn Homes also uses prefab construction for home additions.
Why Build a Prefab Home?
The misconception that prefab construction has a limited architectural range has diminished, helped in part by the successes of our superior designs, including the Dunbar Hill Cottage. Prefab can be applied to almost any architectural style, while built to the same building codes as stick-built homes. The Dunbar Hill Cottage has been created for an empty nest couple who want a small, yet stylish single level floor plan.
