2. Tennessee Farmhouse With Room for Guests
In designing a house to fit with their post-retirement plans in eastern Tennessee, this Georgia couple wanted a first-floor living plan for aging in place and rooms for overnight guests on the second level.
The house design, by Elizabeth Eason Architecture, is a pleasing combination inspired by the couple’s love of houses in Norway and rural Tennessee farmsteads. Norwegian architecture influenced the steep roof gables, while the board-and-batten siding and wraparound porch were inspired by local traditions.
