Custom Design Prefab Farmhouse
Victoria Point is a prefab farmhouse design inspired by our Springfield barn home. Like the Springfield, Victoria Point combines post and beam and non-timbered areas to create a partial post and beam farmhouse structure.
The home owner was able to tour the Springfield so had a clear picture of what he wanted to keep and sought to change in the design. He flipped the first level floor plan and moved the laundry area to the lower level to create a door directly off the kitchen. The second level combines the two bedrooms from the Springfield into one large primary bedroom suite. The loft is an office space for the busy professional home owner.

In today’s architecture, farmhouse has come to mean different things to people. Some see it as a return to simpler times, incorporating pared-down décor with a focus on put-up-your-feet comfort combined with overall efficiency. Others take a thoroughly modern streamlined approach through the use of farmhouse features like gables, dormers and prominent use of white as their inspiration. Yet another group pulls in aspects of both, showcasing modern features while including unmistakable nods to farmhouses of old.
Victoria Point falls into the third category. The home owner has incorporated his favorites from both modern and classic farmhouse style and blended it into a perfect combination of all the things he loves. The kitchen is an example. The modern kitchen from Crown Point Cabinetry incudes an antique curio cabinet from a bygone era. Next to a contemporary style glass pantry entrance is a Dutch door. Past and present sit side by side throughout the farmhouse.
The post and beam farmhouse is a natural fit for Yankee Barn Homes. The clean lines and simplicity of style lends itself to our post and beam, partial post and beam and fully panelized build methods.
Once design is completed, we fabricate the wall and roof panels (complete with windows) in our panel shop. Simultaneously, if timber is being used, it is measured, cut and notched in our frame shop. When production is completed, the home’s panels and timber are loaded onto flatbed trucks and shipped to the build site.
This is how Victoria Point came into being. Timeframes can vary on a number of things, including YBH schedules, contractor availability and your build site permitting process. From conception to move-in date, Victoria Point took about 20 months.
