What is an Architect Design Style Home?

While at its core an Architect Design style home is designed by an architect, there are a variety of traditional styles from which to choose. Some of the more popular architectural styles include Craftsman, Colonial, and Cape Cod. Other styles include Bungalow, Contemporary, Country, Cottage, Farmhouse, Mid-Century Modern, Mountain, Shingle, and Traditional.

Choosing a style gives your architect a starting point. Or you could ask for a wholly original design. Either way, your architect will be able to take your ideas and design a custom home for you.

Yankee Barn Homes is delighted to work with your architect to help you design your new home. They have experience working with outside architects. When an architect is involved, the YBH team brings code compliance, jurisdiction approvals, materials, and finishing selection, along with site selection and building location into the mix. The design team will work with your architect to achieve the goals you have for your new Yankee Barn Home. They’ll also include your architect in all appropriate meetings and communications and meet with them whenever it’s needed.

Where can I build an Architect Design style home?

One of the great benefits of using an architect is they help you choose materials and finishes. They can work around oddly shaped lots, historic trees, smaller spaces, and city lots. With an architect, you have a good steward of resources readily available to you.

Having a team of professionals who know about site selection, and who can guide you through this process is just one of the many benefits that working with Yankee Barn Homes offers. Let Yankee Barn Homes walk you through the different phases of designing and building a home. Their experience will allow you to avoid many of the pitfalls that can come with this process. YBH can work with you no matter where you are in your process. They’re excited to work with you and your architect to design the right post and beam home for you.
