Modern Farmhouse

The modern farmhouse is the evolutionary twist on the traditional farmhouse style.  Tracing its’ origins back to the pastoral farmlands of Europe, this relatively simple architectural style served farmers. The elements of the traditional style that compliment modern trends include simple forms, the use of rustic materials such as shiplap wood, and a façade devoid of ornamentation and color.  The distinguishable elements of the modern style include the use of metal for the roof and trim, clean orthogonal roof lines, and the simplification of the exterior materials such as board and batten and lap siding.
