Explore Farmhouse Home Architecture in Lake Forest IL
American farmhouse style is practical and rustic all at once, featuring a whitewashed exterior contrasted with rough hewn and rustic wood elements. Originally farmhouses were of course built for the inhabitants of farms and were located in rural areas. These farmhouses had a specific purpose and were very modest structures that were simply built using locally available materials, such as wood or stone.
Over time this style has been adapted and appears across the United States in both rural settings and the suburbs, including in North Shore Chicago and Lake Forest. There are many regional farmhouse variations. This style often features a rectangular floor plan and rises one and a half or two stories with a side gabled end roof. Exterior features include white or light colored facades, large porches, fewer, small windows and dormer windows on the upper floor.
In recent years, modern farmhouse style has become very popular. This style takes a lot of cues from the original American farmhouse, but with updates that make it more livable for the modern family, such as an open floor plan and larger windows. Rustic features are combined with traditional and comfortable elements, achieving a certain level of livable sophistication.
