The Yankee Barn Homes Difference

With over 50 years of experience, prefabricated construction at Yankee Barn Homes has evolved to a point where our craftsmanship rivals that of traditional homes. We use a combination of structural Doug fir and traditional dimensional framing allowing us the flexibility to design homes with full, partial, minimal structural or no post and beam frame. Our clients can build almost any style and configuration imaginable. The prefab method reduces time and expenses by streamlining the process with the help of modern assembly practices. Our factory construction with specialized experts is more efficient than doing everything on the build site. However, a misconception with all prefabricated homes is that they come 100% finished. The primary savings with prefab home construction is in the time, not necessarily the money—though faster construction time almost always means less cost.

We would love to assist you with your journey to POST. BEAM. DREAM.

Our design fee is credited to your shell package. No two Yankee Barn homes are exactly alike, as each starts with the vision of the homeowner. While many clients come to us for the beautiful post and beam look, Yankee Barn Homes offers hybrid options as well as no post and beam at all.
