Thistle Hill FarmCountry Dining Room, Milwaukee
Located upon a 200-acre farm of rolling terrain in western Wisconsin, this new, single-family sustainable residence implements today’s advanced technology within a historic farm setting. The arrangement of volumes, detailing of forms and selection of materials provide a weekend retreat that reflects the agrarian styles of the surrounding area. Open floor plans and expansive views allow a free-flowing living experience connected to the natural environment.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
The doors on the right lead to the bridge. The barn structure lends itself to an open-plan floor design, perfect for large gatherings and enjoying the views. The floors throughout are pine, salvaged from river-bottom trees.‘It’s a dream to work with clients who have furnishings that make your work look even better,’ Bickford says. The homeowners saved what they could from the original barn for furniture projects, including the dining table, which a friend made for them. The homeowner made the light fixture himself from metal pipes.
