Yankee Barn Homes is at the forefront of the age in place home build movement. So much so, every one of our newest timberframe home plans is considered an age in place design. Growing older in your home comfortably and safely is not a luxury in today’s world, it’s a necessity. It’s also not just older clients planning these homes. Ninety percent of the plans featured have been designed by YBH with clients who range in age from their 30’s to their 50’s. They are planning for the future while creating homes that are equally beautiful and functional now. You just can’t beat good design!
