We are working on a collection of Urban Farmhouse designs to meet the growing trend!

The Coleraine 1335 (Modified with an Urban Farmhouse exterior)

An Urban Farmhouse is a modern interpretation of classic Farmhouse features. Characteristics of an Urban Farmhouse include, board-and-batten siding, metal roof accents, neutral colors and an open and modern floor plan. Unlike a traditional Farmhouse, an Urban Farmhouse will likely be constructed on smaller or narrower lot. For this reason, our collection offers designs that will work well in Urban or Suburban neighborhoods.

Showcased below is a Design in Progress and a few conceptual designs that are on the drawing board. Later we will show you how you can add Urban Farmhouse features to existing plans in our portfolio.

An open floor plan seamlessly blends the great room, dining room, and island kitchen.

Rendering to Reality – The Coleraine

This customer submitted photo of The Coleraine shows how the homeowner changed the exterior from Country to Rustic Farmhouse with board-and-batten siding and a tin roof. The neutral color palette of white and black also contributes to the Urban Farmhouse aesthetic while the trim and arches have been simplified to reflect modern styling.
