Part of the fun of Farm House Living is “purposing the quirks”. Steeply slanted roof pitches historically were so designed to deflect the elements and provide lasting durability to whatever nature might throw at a dwelling. One hundred years ago prior to modern insulation, they were also designed to elevate and evacuate stifling internal heat from the home. Now that times and insulation have changed, these elements of country-style can be utilized in a modern way. Take for instance the bonus area over the garage: this is now a large 22’x16′ play room that provides a transition space to twin 16×10′ bedrooms.
Recently carpeted and recently painted, these rooms have recessed lighting and great spaces. And if an individual wanted to make a large art room or recording studio, they simply need to remove the “T-shaped” walls and they have one 22’x32′ space to work with.
High ceilings are the rule on the upper level as are positively stunning views to the south and west.
