A Farmhouse for Today
This new custom home is a great example of capturing the spirit of the past in a home that’s clearly part of today’s aesthetic. Here are elements to notice: a carefully balanced mix of exterior siding and roofing materials in well-chosen, reserved colors; dormers that break the line of the eave; contrasting wood accents, richly stained; siding in both vertical and horizontal; and divided, breakfront garage doors. This new home gets the basics of a great home design just right. It makes excellent use of the site, opens the floor plan to comfortable family living, and brightens interior spaces with above-eye-level windows. This is an impressive contemporary home with a secret — it’s also farmhouse satisfying.
