In the Farmhouse windows and doors ebook, you’ll read about the history of the farmhouse and its modern interpretation. We also share ideas on how to capture Farmhouse window and door styles.
Farmhouses were initially built for necessity. Those working the farms needed to be close to the animals and crops. Built with whatever materials were close by, wood was the typical material used. Function was the key driver in how farmhouses were built. Yet almost by accident, their simplicity became a desired look. Farmhouse windows and doors are a large part of the aesthetic.
Farmhouses aren’t just for farms anymore. You’ll find them in both rural and urban areas. To talk about Farmhouse style isn’t so much about the architecture but rather the details. From shiplap to painted brick, there’s an opportunity for anyone to create their Farmhouse dream home.
