Coastal Home The Beachcomber
The Beachcomber is a contemporary style coastal home located on the shores of New England. Its unique architecture was created by the homeowners, themselves. They first came to Yankee Barn Homes as a young couple, just starting out. While they realized a custom home was not in their price range at that time, they never forgot about YBH.
Fast forward about 15-ish years and back the couple came to YBH. This time not only with ideas but with their sketches, too. They had a unique set of requirements. Their land was on the waterfront, therefore local ordinances and requirements were strict. The house was to be a place where extended family could live but, due to it’s location, it could not be a two-family dwelling.
With a background in design, the homeowners quickly got to work devising a single dwelling that offered private “compartments” for various family members. When looking at the plans, you’ll notice the house has two entrance doors on the front, though only one is in view from the street. The interior has a full wall that separates the first level spaces, while the second level bedrooms are separated by a “nook” or pass-through, with doors on either end.

One Big Happy Family
This family truly is big and they are definitely happy. Who wouldn’t be? They have communal space and private areas away from group activities when quiet time is needed.
One creative aspect of this coastal home is the large kitchen. You’ll notice on the small side, there is not a second kitchen, restrictions would not allow a second kitchen. However, there is a “bar” sink and cupboard space in the family room, so morning coffee or a light breakfast may be had without venturing to the larger side of the house. This floor plan is all about preferences – you can choose to have everyone together or you can choose to have smaller groups in different areas. This is how this happy family stays happy. Smart group!
