A Farmhouse Revival - Rediscovering Valued Heritage & Keepsakes

Updated: Nov 2, 2020

Among all the various architecture available to create one's dream home from, I find that none seem to evoke more sentiment than what is most often referred to as 'farmhouse' style. Humble, straight forward, and representative of the history of hardworking families who used skills that often was handed down from parents, grandparents, and others in the community. A time when neighbor helped neighbor, and it was a way of life. Shelter was derived in small cabins, cottages, and simplistic one or two story structures. As families grew, hard earned savings were at times allotted for another room to be added on. In time the family dwelling evolved into a lasting testament of family love and commitment. So much can be said here as it is truly American heritage, and likewise a similar heritage for our many neighbors throughout the other nations of the world.

In a small tribute to the American farmhouse, here is a preview of the Norfolk plan. The inspiration in this design reflects need and practicality, along with room additions, country porches, an upper attic room, and all with a touch of the notable Cape Cod and of saltbox styling of the Northeastern United States. Though designed for high energy performance and lasting, low maintenance, this design retains the warmth and time honored character greatly cherished and desired by so very many,
