Welcome to our entry in the 2018 Parade of Homes™. This year’s home is a primitive monochromatic Colonial with a barn-style garage. You may wonder why this is. In the early years of our country, settlers had to deal with very large snowfalls in winter. To stay close to their food supply and other resources, they would connect their home to the barn. Our home is part of a series of homes celebrating our agricultural beginnings and the spread of American farmhouse designs seen across the country.

This home features 3,700-plus square feet of living space, a four-car garage, Amish cabinetry and many details not seen in homes today. The garage is sided with 108-year-old barn wood that we dismantled this spring.

I would like to give a special thank you to our subcontractors that have helped us learn and better understand our craft. To learn more about what we do, please see us online. We hope to talk with you soon!
