Farmhouses evoke nostalgic memories -- real or imagined -- of a simpler life and a deep, nourishing connection to the seasons and the land. While most of us dont live that way anymore, we all share a longing for the values that this classic American house form represents.

So what makes a true American farmhouse? A farmhouse is intimately connected to the land and all its seasons, dominates a community of buildings, and is built to last using natural, indigenous materials. These are the core qualities of the farmhouse style, whether old or new.

This remarkable collection of 20 new and remodeled farmhouses celebrates the best American farmhouses built in the past five years.
