The Yankee Barn Homes Difference
With over 50 years of experience, Yankee Barn Homes has mastered designing and building high end custom post and beam 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 homes are technically superior to other building methods in energy efficiency while maximizing your desired aesthetic and vision.
We would love to assist you with your journey to POST. BEAM. DREAM.
Craftsmanship & History
We have been in business for over 50 years. The barn home was our founder, Emil Hanslin’s original design concept featuring the Mark I. Today, Yankee Barn Homes designs and builds in any architectural style, barn home to farmhouse, cottage to mountain lodge.
Post & Beam Construction
The post-and-beam half-lap joinery system we use is over 1,000 years old and is known for great strength and ease of fabrication and assembly. In contrast to traditional building methods, the versatile panel construction allows open volumes of space and infinite room configurations.
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.
Our True Wall and True Roof™ Panels are some of the best in the industry; a technological advancement on the SIP design. They allow our clients to build with confidence, knowing their Yankee Barn home will be more cost-effective to maintain, energy-efficient and sustainable.
Where we Have Built
We have built all across the United States and Internationally. Because of our panelized construction methods, we can ship the homes built in our New Hampshire factory just about anywhere including coastline, remote, and mountain areas.
See what our clients have to say from their experience working with our team and, more importantly, living in the homes they have built.
“As with most things, it is always your last interaction which leaves you with your final impression. As a customer… you could have had the smoothest sales process and design process but it’s the delivery and install that will be your final impression and our Supervisor did an outstanding job and is a huge asset…
“Throughout the construction project the team at YBH gave advice and helped me procure necessary materials that did not come with my home package, always staying within my budget. I would recommend them to anyone looking to build a high quality, beautiful post and beam home at a reasonable price!”
“Everyone we interacted with was pleasant, patient, knowledgeable and willing to share his or her experience for our benefit. YBH made every decision and step in the process as painless as possible, and the result is our beautiful, energy efficient “forever” home.”
“The build process was essentially seamless, and an actual joy to be a part of the creation of our dream home. We have learned so much and we would do it again in a second.”
