Our newest post and beam design is yet another home configured as a perfect age-in-place floor plan. Rockport Cottage has everything you’ve come to expect from the creative minds at Yankee Barn Homes and our equally creative clients. Made to appear as a shingled cottage, this homes exterior belies an open interior complete with a two-story great room that is open to both the dining room and kitchen. Walls of windows looking out over the home’s lakeside site are also included.
Post and Beam Design Rockport Cottage
Rockport Cottage is a post and beam beauty, to be sure, but it’s also well thought out and completely functional. Not to mention rock solid due to it’s timber frame skeleton. Did I mention it has a great front porch with a covered breezeway connecting to the garage? I told you, our YBH design team is creative. If you want it, they’ll come up with a way for you to have it, and make it look spectacular while they’re at it!
The first floor consists of the family/social areas including the kitchen, dining and great rooms at one end of the home while on the other side is the master bedroom, master bath and walk-in closet. The entry and a combination half-bath/laundry room creates the dividing line between public and private spaces.
The second level has two large, vaulted ceiling dormer style bedrooms, a shared bath and a bonus room which could be used for quiet reading, as a media room, an office, or whatever you like. Presiding over it all is the gorgeous post and beam frame, on full display in every room. What more could you want?
