Dortmannhof model

A 200-Year-Old German Farmhouse Gets a Quirky, Glass-Fronted Addition21/30

As with most 18th-century half-timbered hall houses, the Dortmannhof was constructed to combine the living quarters, cowshed, and barn under one roof. In this wooden model, the historic and current main living spaces are housed on the left side, while the new additions (in white) are on the right side where the original barn and stables were once located.
