Discover the beauty of living in a timber frame home, through this beautiful Southern Vermont Barn Home. Traditional New England barns inspired the design for this gorgeous barn 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. This barn home is in a prime location and near a handful of mountains, including Mount Snow, Stratton, and Haystack Mountain (the Hermitage Club), perfect for those that like to hit the slopes.
The main level and the walkout basement feature the guest quarters. Between the levels, there are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, perfect for entertaining family and friends for a long weekend.
The second and third floors are the homeowner’s living quarters. These floors are also where all the beautiful exposed wooden beams (the timber frame) is featured. The second floor features a wide-open living space with the great room, dining room, and kitchen flowing into one another. Four large picture windows are featured on the west wall, allowing plenty of natural light in. The master suite and a kid’s bunk room with a bathroom are also located on the first floor. The third floor hosts an open play loft and a guest suite.
Two unique features of this home are the slide from the loft to the main living space. The slide is constructed out of parallam beams and the surface is veneered with a solid sheet of 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 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 with 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.
