Great Rooms Are A Must
Yankee Barn home sites have spectacular views. During the design process, the YBH Design Team will consider potential views and how they will impact interior room placement. How the home is set on the property as well as where and when the sunlight hits the house are incorporated into the design. Another consideration is the elevation of the home in relation to its surrounding views. As in life, the YBH motto is accentuate the positive. Great rooms with gorgeous views will always equal perfection.

What Defines a Great Room
In the literal sense, a great room is a large open space with vaulted ceilings held up by a post and beam frame. This is definitely the case for Yankee Barn Homes’ great rooms. Even if you don’t want to build a full post and beam structure, the great room space will likely have timber frame as a means to obtain that stunning vaulted space.
Figuratively, a great room is just that – a room that is great. When you walk into the space the first thing you do is look around and take it all in. This is the simple definition of a “great” room.
At YBH, the former statement makes the latter a fact. it’s as easy as that!

What Defines a Great View
At first, this seems like a rather ridiculous statement but a great view can mean different things to different people. Our personal preferences for what constitutes a great view are unique to each of us. Some love flat prairies while some prefer mountains. Others like water views or views of a city skyline.
While the definition of a great view is vast, the home that frames the view is not as vast. it must not only suit the site, but also suit the view. Here’s something many don’t realize until they build. The style of your home is often dictated by the site it will occupy. When you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Consider homes you love and what it is you love about them. I guarantee one of the things you like will be how the house relates to the land, whether it’s a conscious thought or not.
The best sited and designed homes will also have great rooms with great views. It really is that simple.
