On our website you will noticed we have dozens of pre-designed timber frame floor plans, from barn homes to large timber frame mountain homes to compact efficient designs. We thought you may be interested to learn what our most requested timber frame floor plans are!
The first timber frame floor that we find to be the most popular is our infamous Classic Barn Home! While we have two slightly varying Classic Barn models, our Classic Barn 2 tends to be the most popular due to the gorgeous cupola. Check out the barn home photo and floor plans below.
The Classic Barn
There is something about this red barn home that people gravitate towards. I’m not sure if it’s the familiarity and warmth a New England style barn evokes in us or if its due to its nice open concept layout. Jeff Davis came up with our Classic Barn Home line 15 years ago and it’s been all the rage ever since. We’ve worked with on many variations of these barn homes all across the country. While many of these Classic Barn Homes are located in New England, we’ve also shipped this timber frame barn home model to New Jersey, New Mexico and even Oregon.
The Classic Barn Home ranges anywhere from 2,200-2,500 (depending if you add the loft). The first features an open concept great room dining room and kitchen. The great room and dining rooms feature a cathedral ceiling with beautiful exposed timbers. A spacious first floor master suite is located on the first floor. The second floor features two spacious bedrooms, a shared bathroom and office/flex space. Not shown is a third level loft which offers additional bonus space. Over the years, the third floor loft has been a bedroom and most recently popular in many barn homes, access to it from kids bedrooms as bonus play space.
The Classic Homestead
The Classic Homestead timber frame barn home is a close tie in popularity to the Classic Barn. This small timber frame home lives large in 1,800 SF. The above picture is a slightly modified version of the floor plan you will see below, which is our standard Classic Homestead 1 model. This home has become extremely popular through the years due to it’s compact floor plan that lives large.
The first floor plan a nice open floor plan with the great room, kitchen and dining room open to one another. The master suite is also located on the first floor. The second floor hosts two additional bedrooms, a shared bathroom an a loft space that captures a beautiful view of the exposed wooden beams and rooms below.
Modern Prefab Home
The next most requested home is the modern prefab panelized home we have featured in our photo galleries on our website. While this isn’t a timber frame floor plan, it is a home we helped craft that uses our prefab panelized wall and roof system. Our 2x wall and roof system is a system we developed 10 years ago to cater to those clients who want a prefab home that is not timber frame. This simple, clean lines home design features a shallow pitched roof on one side and a shed roof on the other. The shed roof section of the house features a nice wall of windows enhancing the modern appeal of this home. Our panelized system allows a structural shell to be erected in no time, drastically cutting down the on site labor time. Not only is the time to build on site less, but there is minimal waste and the accuracy is spot on with minimal on-site cuts if any at all needed.
This home we worked was designed by an Architect, therefore we cannot share the plans. However, it features around 3,000 SF with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The first floor features a spacious kitchen that opens into the dining room and opens to the living room. These main living areas all feature a wall of windows, bringing the outdoors in with plenty of natural light. An office is also located on the first floor. The second floor features all 4 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms.
If you are interested in building a modern prefab home, we can certainly assist with the design in any size you would like.
