Modern Farm StyleCountry Dining Room, DC Metro

AV Architects + Builders
Location: Great Falls, VA, USA

Our modern farm style home design was exactly what our clients were looking for. They had the charm and the landscape they wanted, but needed a boost to help accommodate a family of four. Our design saw us tear down their existing garage and transform the space into an entertaining family friendly kitchen. This addition moved the entry of the home to the other side and switched the view of the kitchen on the side of the home with more natural light. As for the ceilings, we went ahead and changed the traditional 7’8” ceilings to a 9’4” ceiling. Our decision to approach this home with smart design resulted in removing the existing stick frame roof and replacing it with engineered trusses to have a higher and wider roof, which allowed for the open plan to be implemented without the use of supporting beams. And once the finished product was complete, our clients had a home that doubled in space and created many more opportunities for entertaining and relaxing in style.

Let the light inIdeal for north-facing rooms or gloomy spaces, a half-glazed barn door is a great way to create a room division without blocking the light. Choose this option for rooms that could do with borrowing light from adjoining spaces. The glazing will allow sun to pour in from nearby rooms, while still acting as a divider.Be inspired by sliding pocket doors

I love this barn door. I would want the same look but with windows all the way to the bottom.
