how we work

Building with Yankee Barn Homes

Welcome to the beginning of your journey to build a custom Yankee Barn Home! Your dream home will develop and progress through the use of our advanced 3-D architectural and virtual software.




Evaluate if YBH is a fit for your project. Review our process, sample pricing, package components, optional upgrades, and a build timeline with your Yankee Barn Homes representative.


Design Process

When you are ready to engage in design, submit a signed Design Agreement with fee, and meet your team to begin the design process. Based on your criteria, your custom floor plans will be created. Review 3D virtual tours and package price estimate.


Builder Selection

Once you have selected your builder you will review progress plans, timelines, budgets and permitting needs with your contractor. YBH will assist you along the way.


Construction Process

Submit a signed Construction Agreement with deposit and receive final construction plans for your home. Your Home Shell Package will be scheduled for production in our facility.


Delivery & Assembly

The delivery to your site will be coordinated with your builder to ensure a smooth process. A YBH supervisor will be on-site. You have the option to hire a YBH Labor Crew to assemble your Shell Package Components.


On-Site Building & Finishes

Your general contractor will take it from here to install siding, roofing, exterior doors, mechanicals and all of the finishes to bring your vision to life.

Design Process

The YBH in-house design team takes your wish list and turns it into a three-dimensional reality, culminating in a virtual walk through of your custom designed home. During the design process your team will work with you virtually through your client portal and online meetings. This unique interactive experience allows clients to visualize their home inside and out prior to production.  When we produce your Yankee Barn Home, your design deposit is credited to the cost of your Home Shell Package.

You can either begin your Design Process from an existing Yankee Barn Home design and modify it to your needs or bring together ideas from your imagination, gathered images of design elements, or a list of lifestyle requirements. Our team will help you through the process to conceptualize your dream home while considering your build site elements such as; views, building envelope location, lighting, and natural site features.

Design Initiation

Our team reviews your wish list or starting point design, asks questions, and begins conceptualizing your home.

Schematic Floor Plans

The Floor Plans allow you to look at room configurations, the use of timber frame, overall square footage and more.

Progress Plans

The design requirements, floor layout and style of the home all come together to create a three-dimensional visualization (BIM, Building Information Modelling) of your home exterior and interior.

Construction Plans

Once you have approved your home design and move into production, we create the formal construction plans for the complete building process.


Once you have completed the design process we will provide a price quote for your Home Shell Package based on your final component selections for your custom design.

Your local on-site builder will use the plans we have created to give you a quote for their part of your project including items such as; site work, foundation, siding and trim, roofing material, interior wall framing, utilities, appliances, and interior finishes. Our team can assist you in communicating project details to your local builder.
