Discover the beauty of living in a timber frame home, through this beautiful Southern Vermont Barn Home. This new barn home is located near a handful of mountains, including the exclusive Hermitage Club, perfect for those that like to hit the slopes.
The design for this gorgeous home was inspired by traditional New England barns to create this barn style home. The floor plan is unique with the homeowner’s primary living and they also incorporated separate guest quarters for friends and family and also they rent it out throughout the year.
The main level and the walkout basement, features the guest quarters. Between the levels there are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, perfect for families looking for a ski getaway.
The second and third floor are the homeowner’s living quarters. The main floor features a wide open living space with the great room, dining room and kitchen open to one another. Four large picture windows are featured on the west wall, allowing plenty of natural light in. The master suite and kids bunk room with a bathroom is also located on the first floor. The second floor hosts an open play loft and a guest suite.
Two really unique features of this home are the slide from the loft to the main living space. The slide was constructed out of parallam beams and the surface is veneered with a solid sheet on zinc. The kids can slide down to join the parents after playing in the loft. The other cool feature is the powder room on the main level, which features a stump that was pulled off the property that was turned into an amazing pedestal.

Not only is this barn home beautiful, but it’s very energy efficient too with the use of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS). In fact beyond the beauty, the way this timber frame home was constructed was entirely all through prefab construction. Our client’s started out with a prefab foundation system called Superior Walls. The foundation system is modular and arrives in panels that are insulated and ready for utilities and Sheetrock. The best part of this system is that it was installed in just a day. The panels are all ready for mechanicals and Sheetrock. The structural shell of the home is made up of timber frame and structural insulated panels (SIPS), allowing the home’s structure to be installed within a couple of weeks. Not only was the construction fast, but also very efficient.
