The Tankersley Farm is a single-family dwelling for a husband and wife couple and their pets. Designed with a country farmhouse feel, the house focuses on natural materials, simple detailing and physical/visual connections to the outside. The exterior is simple and strives to recall the iconic farmhouse image of vertical board & batten siding, large picture windows and metal standing seam roofs. The interior main level of the house features plenty of open spaces with exposed wood framed ceilings and direct access to a large wrap-around front porch. A simple scissor stair with heart pine treads & a steel handrail takes you to the second level where the form of the roof is expressed with white walls and pine tongue & groove ceilings. Visual connections to the exterior are major part of each space within the house and give you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the surroundings.
