S HIPLAP walls were painted in Benjamin Moore’s
Chantilly Lace. Barn doors were stained by Dave and
Heather in a weathered gray. The fireplace is wood-burn-ing,
and the kitchen has an apron sink, another farmhouse
signature stemming from before plumbing when large basins were
needed to hold water brought in from nearby riverbeds. The open floor
plan and clerestory loft are features of historic farm homes as well.
“The house reminds me of an older house on my grandfather’s
farm. It’s really quaint and the porch gives the real tie to the farm
and farmhouse look in my opinion,” Thompson says.
Clockwise from above: Heather repurposed old boat dock cleats into
hangers for the mudroom. A soaking tub offers rest and relaxation in
the master bath. Salvaged barn wood is used for the master bedroom
headboard and powder room vanity. Barn doors in the guest bedroom
are stained in weathered gray. Board and batten siding and comfortable
furnishings bring farmhouse style to the back porch.
