Happy, happy Home Tour Friday to you! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week – mine flew!
Today we head to Chatham, New York to see a traditional farmhouse that is actually a newly-built modern model of sustainability.
I love this home!
This house uses both passive and solar energy and super insulation from foundation to attic to receive a Whole House Energy Rating. Panelized construction, low VOC paint, reclaimed flooring and light fixtures, ICF foundation, high efficiency boiler and appliances as well as low-flow toilets allow these homeowners to leave a lighter footprint behind while gracing the landscape with a charming farmhouse fitting of the country region.
Somehow the choice of a pig for the weathervane here sets a comical mood for the home – this is not a home that takes itself too seriously.
And I love that.
The entry is simple and sublime.
The living room and its early American furniture.
Look at all this light streaming in. Lovely.
The dining room is gorgeous, but how do they have people over with only four chairs?
Sorry, that’s just me.
The library houses an impressive number of volumes with its gorgeous millwork.
Clearly my favorite room of the home. Stunning.
Or perhaps it’s this screened porch – love this room!
And this view!
Many thanks to Connor Homes for creating all this exquisitely simple beauty.
Thanks also to Jim Westphalen for use of his photos.
Everyone, I wish you the most wonderful Mother’s Day this coming Sunday. Love, joy and rest (!) to you!
