Modern Farm House themed design

Farm Haus Front watermarked

Farm house design does not have an official definition, but this style certainly has its own character. It has a great visual appeal and brings back images from the past, recreating the unique atmosphere and harmony of timeless architecture. The goal of Friedën is to promote the historical German design vernacular built throughout our community from the 1850’s through the 1920’s, with the addition of modern materials, glass systems, finishes, and fixtures. In general it is all about simple organic things, light colors, simple lines and simple details using only high quality materials. Traditional gable roof pitches, large open porches, “dog trots”, and an overall emphasis on outdoor living.
