A gorgeous mix of rustic and contemporary, this post and beam barn house has it all. This prefab house is one of the many barn home designs from Sand Creek Post and Beam. This company has been building quality barn post and beam houses since 2004, and they have even been featured in Timber Home Living's magazine in 2016. They specialize in wood barns and barn style homes made with all natural timber posts and beams. Since their start in 2004, the company has proudly built homes and barns all across America for over one thousand satisfied customers. Their glowing testimonials will show you how satisfied their customers are with their homes. The barns that they build can be used for housing animals like horses, but they can also be used to shelter farm equipment from the elements. People can use their barns for a variety of uses though, including living in these structures as homes. The barn style houses are just what the name implies, a house that has the same profile as a barn, but is made to be suitable to live in year round.
The finished prefab barns will eventually be insulated, so when it comes time for colder weather, the inhabitants will stay nice and cozy warm. The prefabricated construction kits include most everything that is needed to build these barn houses, including the post and beam frame, exterior siding and baton board, a foundation plan, a roof insulation package with pine T&G interior ceiling boards. The wall framing is also included with sheathing and house wrap, as well as the stairs and railings. In this prefab package interior wall finishing like drywall and insulation is not included, the doors and windows are also not included, and neither is the plumbing or electric, so these are things that would have to be sorted out by the customer. They have some great prefab plans available on their website, all ranging in different sizes and layouts, so you can get an idea of how much one of these barn houses would cost. A 1,040 square foot barn house would start at $57,905 for the prefab kit for example.
So customers get a kit with most of the building materials in it, they are pre-cut and ready to be assembled, which cuts down on the amount of work that the customer has to put in, or the number of hours their hired contractor has to work, which equals less money for the customer. This also means that the time to build a prefab house will be less than building a home the conventional way since, during the cutting and reassembly phase of building, all of the work is done in a sheltered environment. So, for at least part of the process, things like weather and storms are of no concern. This gorgeous Great Plains Western Barn Home from Sand Creek Post and Beam looks a lot like a barn from the exterior, especially with the siding they chose and the lines of the roof. It also looks quite homey from the outside too though. with the upper deck and a lower deck on the main level. Inside, there's no mistaking that this is indeed a home. There is a great living area with the open kitchen, living room and dining are all in one, wide-open space with the impressive beams overhead. It has a very country classic design and style, but it's also very modern as well, making for a great mix of styles and creating comfort throughout the home. This home would look great on any property, especially a country property or a farm.
