An assortment of old, refinished chairs salvaged from area church yard sales surrounds the gathering spot. “The hope has been to combine archaic and modern elements in a way that would enhance the beauty of each by virtue of its contrast with the other.” —Tom Givone
The Floating Farmhouse’s semitransparent addition has a roofline that matches the pitch of the original 1820s farmhouse. A porch, tucked under the side eaves, is cantilevered over a stream that runs through the property. Ikea loungers are illuminated from the interior by commercial gymnasium lights repurposed as pendant lamps.
