Rehkamp Larson Architects in collaboration with Crever Construction has designed this spectacular rustic-modern farmhouse located in Minnesota. This new house exudes practicality, authenticity, and a deep connection to nature. At the request of the down-to-earth homeowners, the design seamlessly blends farmhouse charm with the rustic appeal of a barn.
Strategically situated to complement two existing barns, the house, and garage offer stunning views of the southern pond while warmly welcoming visitors from the east. The homeowners’ unwavering commitment to sustainability is evident in every aspect of the home. A resilient steel roof, T-mass insulated concrete foundation, and cedar siding treated with an eco-friendly wood treatment showcase their eco-conscious choices.
Additionally, geothermal heating and cooling systems contribute to their environmentally friendly lifestyle. Every corner of this dwelling tells a personal story. The front stoop proudly displays historic red brick pavers salvaged from the streets of Minneapolis, beautifully repurposed from their previous home.
