This farmhouse was literally falling down when architect Chad Everhart came across it. He and his wife demolished the building—salvaging some hemlock and chestnut flooring here, some one-inch-by-ten-inch planks of white pine there—and set about rebuilding on the original concrete block foundation.
Red and yellow accent colors now help the 950-square-foot home blend with natural North Carolina foliage. Cantilevered porches and decks provide deep shadows.
Nestled in two and a half acres of land near Boone, North Carolina, Chad Everhart renovates an old farmhouse and turns it into a modest residence. Image courtesy Chad Everhart Architect.
