Yankee Barn Homes’ newest design is a partial post and beam plan with a definitive contemporary vibe. Meant to comfortably house a host of family and friends, Bay View achieves its goal and then some.
Partial Post and Beam in Southampton
Bay View will reside in an area of Southampton known as Shinnecock Hills. The contemporary barn-style home has been sited for maximum views of Shinnecock Bay. An abundance of over-size windows and doors have been strategically planned to overlook the sparkling waters by day and catch the cool sea breezes by night.
We can tell the exterior of Bay View is going to be a show-stopper but what about the interior? A look at the floor plans tells you the home is a partial post and beam open concept design with a unique twist. The main living and master suite are on the top floor. Family and guest bedrooms and baths are on the first level (with more included on the lower level). This was done in order to allow the main living area of the home to gain unfettered access to those spectacular water views.
I recently spoke with the owner. She told me “Bay View has been designed for the view and as a home that can host lots of guests, including children. There is a purposeful separation between the first floor, housing 3 bedrooms/bathrooms and a family room, from the main living area upstairs. The design allows everyone to have their own space. The elevator has been included to easily bring in groceries, etc., allowing the homeowners to be any age and live there comfortably.”
We are very excited to chronicle Bay View as it progresses from our drafting boards, to a 3-D structure and into a home. It will be a wonderful example of Yankee Barn’s partial post and beam technique, allowing the homeowner to have timber where they want it and not where they don’t.
Post and Beam Living will be sure to keep you updated on progress of the build. Bay View promises to be a home you won’t want to miss!
