Small Barn Home

Small Barn Home Orchard View

The small barn home has been a popular topic at Yankee Barn Homes. We’ve received major interest from a number of potential clients regarding post and beam timber frame designs which incorporate all the bells and whistles YBH is known for, but within a smaller foot print.

Stone Mountain Barn Home

Stone Mountain Barn House
