This Victorian styled farmhouse is a beautiful blend of country living with modern amenities. This home has ample space inside and outside with a large porch area on both sides of the front door. The design is well-suited to a family who loves to socialize with friends and have family get-togethers.
The interior of the home is just as spacious with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, suitable for a large family or a growing family. The gorgeous earthy green color of the home blends in with the green of the lovely scenery and it gives the illusion of a larger outdoor living space. A two-car garage completes the convenient luxuries of this modern farmhouse, as your vehicles will be protected from the sun and inclement weather. If you have only one car, the other side of the garage can be a shop space or artists area.
We highly recommend to use steel framing structure for a longer and more durable low maintenance.

Thinking outside of the traditionally built home may be difficult for some home seekers but for others having alternatives is a an appealing idea. The steel framed home is an option many families are taking a liking to, and are moving forward with plans to live in an alternatively-built home. There are many reasons to be drawn to the steel kit home and we’ll explore a couple of those reasons below.
The proud owner of this home has the option of having porches on two levels. This not only enhances the design and look of the home but also gives the homeowner more outside space. Today, homebuyers are seeking to live in and outside the home, and this design offers that option.
The master bedroom suite is another big draw because everyone loves an en suite bathroom design. It can lend the illusion of a larger master bedroom and also offer the homeowner privacy, especially if they have children. The media room is another draw, particularly for a family that loves to live the social life.
This is a house which can easily be built using wooden or steel frames. We recommend to get it built on steel frames for durability and longevity.

You have to see this house! We can all learn something from this unique mastery of simplicity when it comes to building.
This vacation house, set in the middle of nature, is an attractive design in a nice setting, but there’s something else to it. While on this site we’ve featured a number of prefab homes, tiny houses, modular construction projects, metal building home options, and a ton of other things, I’ve never seen a building style like this. I’m interested.
We’re always seeking for simple building styles, because that’s part of our ‘mission’ on the site — to try to find enough options for everybody to find something that suits them and move towards a goal where everybody has their own home, whether a prefab, modular, tiny house, house boat, park model, cabin, house on wheels, whatever. So check out this building style.
It’s a building called the “Rio Bonito” and it’s by architect Carla Juacaba (of Brazil). She’s simply constructed two stone walls (although in my conception of making this simple I’m picturing cinder blocks or even concrete perhaps). Then she’s embedded the flat metal frame of the floor and ceiling into these two walls.
This sets the house up off the ground. Then she’s just slid stairs in front of the patio that is part of the entire floor.
There’s also a stone stairway on one of the walls, which leads the “cabin” (can you call it that?) up onto the roof.
She set a few walls in the center of the building to have a private bathroom, and for walls she just glazed them with large glass panels / sliding doors.
Heat? She left part of the stone wall hallow, so it can serve as a fireplace. It has a grate in front of it. The decor is minimalist. It has lights, but I suspect the kitchen stove might be wood burning, set in an adobe or other clay constructed cooking “desk”. There’s also a propane-style cookstove set up there.
For floors, she used plain long wooden floor boards with a shiny finish.
The furniture is minimal.
While this construction is an example of how simplicity can lend itself to style, you can tell this project was undertaken by a real stylish architect because of how she harmonized the shapes and sizes, the various materials, and even the colors (look at the colors of the patio, for example). What do you think?
As for lights, they have some set up. I’m not sure whether they power these with solar panels or a generator or what. I’m not sure how they get water to the cabin, either, for showers and cooking / washing. There are off-the-grid options for these things though that could be implemented.
These images and the one above are big, so they’ll look best on a large computer screen. They might also take a minute to load.For more work by Carla Juacaba, find her in our directory, where you can also find a bunch of other listings depending on your style interests, from prefabs to tiny homes. You can also check out some cabins here, tiny homes here, prefabs here, and metal buildings elsewhere on our site.
