Post and beam homes and barns are a wonder to watch go up. For starters, they erect so quickly you might miss it if you aren’t at the site for a week. Secondly, it’s a thrill to see the beauty in the magnificent frame; a stunning skeleton, if you will. There’s something so solid in those timbers, seeing that frame you know your home is going to exceed everything you’d expected. It is an exhilarating experience and a marvel to see. YBH recently received a progress report and construction photos from the owners of The Cooperstown Farmhouse. Take a look...
In our final interview with the amazing husband and wife team behind both Moose Ridge Lodge and the Main Street Farmhouse, we find out what’s on the horizon for their new Yankee Barn home. Stefanie and Andrew have a number of spaces yet to perfect at the Main Street Farmhouse, and more than enough know-how to finish them. Find out what’s on the agenda.
Main Street Farmhouse Going Forward
Post and Beam Living: What is your next project?
Stefanie: The next project… where do I start? I don’t think projects ever end for us. We are always looking for a way to make a space more unique or better. We are currently working to finish the fireplace and the brick surround. Our next big project is the mudroom. It’s the major landing space for all our things. Our aim is to make it not only functional and organized but aesthetically pleasing and in sync with the overall style of the farmhouse. I have lots of Pins on Pinterest lined up for this one. I have a favorite store in Kennebunkport, Maine, that sells reclaimed house parts. It’s called Old House Parts. I’ve purchased our pantry door, the vintage porcelain sink and recently, a few windows for Andrew (wink). I’d like him to transform them into a barn door with a transom for the main entry.
As far as the outside is concerned, I have a few ideas brewing for that space, too. I’ll let you know….
Editor’s Note: Since this interview took place, Stefanie has gotten back to us with exciting news about the exterior of the Main Street farmhouse. Landscaping has begun (Stefanie designed), the barbecue pit and patio are almost done, and best of all, there will be an in-ground pool installed very soon!
Post and Beam Living: While this winds up our four-part interview with Stefanie and Andrew, it by no means winds up our continuing friendship with this creative couple. We will stay in touch with Stefanie and Andrew as we are certain there are and will be more creative happenings at the Main Street Farmhouse.
