My obsession with white farmhouses is approaching fever pitch. Geeeez, I live in the rural South you think one would come my way.
In all honesty–its really me and my impatience typing. I did tour Joel’s Crossing which was an incredibly unique–farmhouse.
In order to get some of this out of my system I’m posting a farmhouse roundup. Please tell me– which is your favorite?
Let’s start off with a real whopper,
I really like the idea of a sprawling farmhouse with additions and angles and I think my girls would like to push a wagon around this yard any day,
This is all crazy good, the amount of detail here is pretty incredible,
This is the way cool and very open kitchen in Emerson Fry’s farmhouse
This is the “floating farmhouse”, the porch is cantilevered over the creek. Ridiculous!
This modern farmhouse has a covered walkway that leads to a barn or guest quarters,
my farmhouse bath will look very similar to this sans rustic bench,
more modern farmhouse with a dark metal roof, I like the exposed rafter tails and the simplicity of it all
farm goes a little formal with the boxwood garden,
Delicious remodel of a farmhouse kitchen, that sink is killer

The Grout Cottage has some new lines on all four sides. All of the gable ends are now a-frame. This is the back exterior of the house now. I know it still looks rough. They all look rough for a while and I have to remind myself to remain patient. That horrible upstairs porch will be ripped off next week and I can’t wait.
After some delay, the crew is back at the Grout Cottage today. Scaffolding in full effect, they are working on changing the last gable end on the front of the house. Lots of people are stopping to look and people are slowing down as they drive by but the best is yet to come—the transformation and painting of the exterior.
Turns out that the old girl had six layers of shingles on with a layer of metal over it and it still leaked. I’ve seen two or three maybe but never six. Renovation is all about peeling back the layers to uncover something beautiful.
