Salvaged by De­sign

Modern Farmhouse Style - - Character Study -

An 1840s farm­house was beaten down and aban­doned un­til builder Barry Brown got his hands on it for a much-needed makeover. His clients wanted to hold on to the rus­tic el­e­ment, so Brown and his team re­built the house from the ground up us­ing dis­as­sem­bled pieces from the orig­i­nal struc­ture. The large 1,600-square-foot farm­house now wel­comes fam­ily and friends to the acreage as a guest cot­tage. Chipped wood, tra­di­tional win­dows, and a wrap­around porch sup­ply this farm­house with plenty of coun­try charm.

“The new struc­ture is very much like the orig­i­nal build­ing, but it has mod­ern sen­si­bil­i­ties that make it more liv­able and less util­i­tar­ian.”
