Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Farmhouses evoke nostalgic memories--real or imagined--of a simpler life and a deep, nourishing connection to the seasons and the land. While most of us don't live that way anymore, we all share a longing for the values that this classic American house form represents.

So what makes a true American farmhouse? A farmhouse is intimately connected to the land and all its seasons, dominates a community of buildings, and is built to last using natural, indigenous materials. These are the core qualities of the farmhouse style, whether old or new.

From a working farm on Martha's Vineyard to a horse ranch in Washington State, this remarkable collection of 20 new and remodeled farmhouses celebrates the best American farmhouses built in the past five years. Over 300 photographs beautifully illustrate these homes, and the accompanying site and floor plans, historical sidebars, and up-close details add depth to this rich collection.

With this ground breaking book, America's quintessential house style is reinvented for the 21st-century family.

Synopsis:

This remarkable collection of over 300 photographs vividly details and celebrates today's interpretation of the American farmhouse and focuses on traditional elements as adapted for modern needs.
