The Yankee Barn home fireplace is a focal point with major impact. Whether the style is a mantled fireplace, a stone structure, a contemporary design, or a rustic wood-stove, it combines with the post and beam frame to draw the eye and create a focal point. Yankee Barn homes are known for beautiful post and beam frames. There is no better way to accentuate that frame than with an eye-catching fireplace.
A fireplace speaks to who you are and the lifestyle you lead. It sets the tone and reflects not only the room in which the fireplace resides, but that of the entire house. However, never feel restricted by the design of your fireplace. A field stone fireplace is equally at home with elegant oriental rugs and classic furniture as it is with contemporary pieces.
Fireplaces create ambiance and warmth; two key elements in making a house a “home”. Seating is arranged around a fireplace for this very reason. Family and friends will naturally gravitate to the room where the fireplace is located, particularly during colder weather.
When building a Yankee Barn, owners have the option to locate a fireplace centrally within the home, on an interior wall, or an exterior side or gable end wall. Placement depends on the structural foundation and personal aesthetics. Your vision combined with the YBH design’s knowledge will create a fireplace unique to you and your home.
