Modern Farmhouse

With a price tag that’s affordable to young buyers, the Contemporary Farmhouse is a far cry from multimillion-dollar show homes of recent years but doesn’t skimp on modern style, which is important to millennials

The two-story open kitchen pulls in daylight from two levels. Although the rustic farmhouse design features plentiful glazing, low-E glass helps keep the home cooler in the summer months and warmer in the winter months.

Wood-look plank tiles bring the warmth and style of hardwood flooring to indoor spaces and are durable enough to extend to the outdoor deck area.

With its own separate entrance, the optional studio over the garage is ideal for guests, a nanny, or an aging parent.

Each room in the home has multiple ventilation points, allowing for fresh air intake whenever the outside temperature allows. Other health-related measures include low-VOC paint, hard surface flooring to help minimize dust, and a central vacuum system. Shown here is the second-floor loft.

The home’s flexible design provides several ways to lessen the financial and emotional burdens of owning a home. Shown here is the master bedroom.
