Eckxstudio designed this 5,200 sf modern farmhouse project in 2016. The exterior of the home uses stone and board-and-batten siding from the Texas vernacular but we put a more modern spin on the materials’ forms with thin battens and dark stone instead of traditional Texas limestone. A galvanized standing-seam metal roof tops the house further adding to the farmhouse nod. Inside, a modern and spacious approach was designed for the owners. The main living room volume extends from the front of the house to the back through the kitchen with a tall 13′ ceiling trimmed out with rustic beams and smooth drywall.
