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 3D architectural and virtual software.
The YBH in-house design team takes your wish list and turns it into a three-dimensional reality, culminating in a virtual walk through your custom designed home. This unique experience is cost effect as changes are made prior to production. Because your design fee is credited to the cost of your Home Shell Package, you save on purchasing plans that don’t work for you or paying high fees to an architect with little flexibility.
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 requirement. 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 nature site features.
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.
The design requirements, floor layout and style of the home all come together to create a three-dimensional rendering of your home exterior and interior.
Once you have approved your home design and move into production, we create the formal construction plans for the complete building process.
To begin the process, Yankee Barn Homes provides you with a range per square foot for our services and Home Shell Package. At this time the price per square foot is approximately $100 – $165. Once you have completed the design process for you home we will provide an exact price quote for your Home Shell Package based on all of the details for your custom design.
Factors impacting local build costs:

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.
