Barn houses hold great appeal with many people who decide to build a new home. The ability to have exactly what you want, exactly how and where you want it is a wonderful thing that's pretty much unique to a post and beam home. Due to the structural support of the frame, the floor plan may be designed in just about any configuration...
Cottage at the Barn is a small get-away house plan, ideal for anyone looking to build a single level vacation home. It was recently featured on Post and Beam Living and the feedback was very positive (read article). The cottage is currently being built in Virginia and the homeowners, Mark and Karen, have been great about sending us updates on progress.
At just 1,176 square feet, this two bedroom, two bath cottage has serious appeal. A timbered vaulted open space encompasses the kitchen, dining and living areas, while a laundry/mudroom with exterior door is off to the side. The side door provides access to an out of the way drop zone for luggage and other vacation items. This space also incorporates laundry facilities.
Built in a warmer climate, this seasonal home required no dug foundation. Built on a raised base, the cottage is fully insulated and has all the amenities one would expect in a second home. Actually, more because Mark and Karen have a great way with interior spaces. This little beauty has unique touches like glass door knobs, unique tile flooring and a 60″ Quorum Windmill ceiling fan.
Be sure to check our website in a few months as we’re hoping to get finish photography of the cottage as soon as possible.
