Modern Farmhouse

The modern farmhouse is always in style.

Seriously, who doesn’t love the modern farmhouse classic black and white style? We have been building homes for the last 20 years. That means we went from farmhouse to a modern farmhouse look over the years. While the classic farmhouse style tends to lean more on the side of warm tones and neutrals, modern farmhouse tends to invite more whites, pastels and off-whites for a brighter look.

How can you achieve a modern farmhouse look? Use board and batten siding on your home’s exterior for a classic farmhouse look. Thicker pieces of wood (boards) are alternated with thinner, narrower pieces of wood (battens) to create dimension and texture. The battens protrude from the board to create a layering effect that can also help your house look taller.
