Northeast US rural vernacular house (rural/neotraditional/TND)

Dan T.
This is definitely not another "casa moderna". The design and proportions of this "new old house" borrows heavily from pre-Civil War Colonial, Greek Revival, and vernacular farmhouses in Upstate New York and southern New England. It doesn't borrow their notoriously low ceiling heights, goofy floor plans, 50 amp electrical service, or $400 monthly heating bills. Thus, the growing popularity of new old houses among homebuyers who want the character of an old house, but not the hassle. You might see a house like this in a well-off, quainty-quaint rural town or hamlet in the Northeastern United States-- the kind of place with no shortage of small liberal arts colleges, farmers markets, boutiques that sell long bohemian dresses, and Volvo station wagons. McMansion-shunning custom home builders in the Northeast Corridor will probably have a few houses like this in their portfolio. This model is meant for form-based zoning code illustration. It has floors, 8'" (20 cm) thick exterior walls, and detailed elevations on all sides. Otherwise, it's a shell with no stairs, stairwells, or defined rooms. #New_York #Albany #Upstate_New_York #Masssachusetts #Connecticut #Rhode_Island #New_Hampshire #Vermont #Maine #New_Jersey #Pennsylvania #New_England #Northeast #Midwest #antebellum #building #colonial #farmhouse #TND #greek_revival #home #house #maison #residence #new_old_house #new_urban #new_urbanism #rural #single_family #suburban #transect #T2 #T3 #village #neotraditional #zoning #form_based_code #detached
