Farmhouses used to be quite large houses on a large tract of land that includes a barn. They may be two stories high or a big sprawling house. Large families were the norm in times past and that’s why houses and even furniture like the dinner table tend to be large and heavy designs meant to be sturdy and long lasting. Modern times have changed the look of the farm house. The large rambling houses of old has now become smart and compact bungalows or if large, spruced up with structures at the sides. It now has driveways when before it was all garden. Here are some modern farmhouse designs that we think represent the farmhouse today that still retain their rustic and charming ways.
