The Cobb Meadow New Hampshire Post and Beam Floor Plan

New Hampshire Post and Beam Home

With just under 2,200 sf of living space, this custom post and beam home in southwest New Hampshire was built to be a primary home for its owners. Set on a sloped lot, the house sits high on the property and looks down over the lush New England landscape. You'll notice on the first floor plan (below), that there are two decks (one is a screened porch just off the dining room) you can sit on to take in the views.


First Floor Plan (1400 sf)

Post and Beam Floor Plan

One of the items that was important to this homeowner was to have their master bedroom on the main level, as you can see in the floor plan above. First floor master bedrooms are a fantastic choice for the the homeowner who is looking forward to retirement. As we age, getting around our homes can become more difficult. Building your dream retirement home means making design choices that make life a little easier on you. This particular floor plan is perfect for older couples who love to have family visit, but prefer not to venture up and down stairs on a daily basis.

Post and Beam Home Foyer

One of the aspects I love so much about this custom post and beam home is the spacious foyer. There's plenty of room for antiques and artwork without ever feeling cluttered. It's amazingly open and spacious and leads you right into an even more open space - the great room!

Post and Beam Living Room

Just past the foyer, we are invited into the living room. Sitting under the cathedral ceiling and a beautifully exposed post and beam frame, the artistry of post and beam living truly comes alive.

I love the change in ceiling height from the living room into the kitchen and dining areas. A more traditional height adjacent to cathedral ceilings is an excellent way of creating ambiance and warmth in two different rooms in your home.

Second Floor Plan (790 sf)

The second floor boasts one bedroom and a full bathroom - perfect for guest quarters. The two loft spaces may be used for a variety of purposes. We've seen lofts turned into offices for the family computer or made into a cozy sitting area for relaxing. The second loft space (on the right of the plan) could also be converted into the second bedroom.

Post and Beam Guest Bedroom

The second floor bedroom has fantastic design elements. The awning windows (on the wall behind the bed) are a great way to ensure privacy while allowing light and air into the room. My favorite part of this bedroom is the adorable window seat. Perfect for sitting while you enjoy your morning coffee.

Post and Beam Home Deck

Lastly, let's relax on the second floor deck of this fabulous and custom post and beam home.
