My son married a farmers daughter and then bought a farm and built a farm house They wanted to have that rustic look so they asked me to help them . I guess I have a knack for making things look rough. I made all the trim from knotty pine my daughter in law stained it. I think it has the desired effect . My son did the floors.

Wow! But it isn’t reminiscent of the farmhouses either of us grew up in!

The work looks fantastic. The home is gorgeous!

Very nice job, and it looks like a beautiful house.
One thing puzzles me about the design of the house…those 2 columns that are in the walk way.
If that’s a load bearing wall, they should have used a stronger support header, and eliminated the columns.
Since they are there, it would be sweet if you made 2 matching units to fill in the outer openings. Something with display shelves, or to put a plant on. It would define the walk thru area, and look great…just saying.

Your rough look is pretty polished to me, but it does give it a nice look, more of a craftsman rustic but that
is a beautiful open, yet defined dining room. Looks like a 2cnd or 3rd generation farm house, not the one
you built when you first bought the farm.
