This friendly little gambrel-roofed farmhouse is just the ticket if you need a backyard office, guest room, exercise room, yoga studio, or artist’s retreat. She’d make an adorable little country store at your campground or resort retreat! She would also make the perfect little starter cottage for that piece of empty country land you’ve been itchin’ to buy!
The Farmhouse Gambrel is 200 s.f., as one large open room plus loft. She has a kitchenette and bathette.
She is 11 ft. wide by 18 ft. long and approximately 13’6″ ft. high at roof peak.
She is small enough to be easily transported by truck to your location. She’s under 200 s.f., so she should qualify as a garden or yard shed in most urban areas and not require a permit (please check with your local authorities). She is best suited for warm climates – she’s a southern farmgirl at heart.
The door is all salvaged, vintage Pine paneled wood, circa 1850.
She has 6 windows, single hung, made of Vintage Pine.
Her interior walls are Knotty Pine wainscot with shiplap upper walls.
The interior ceiling is also vintage Long Leaf Pine.
Her flooring is antique tongue and groove 3 1/4″ Long Leaf Pine from Texas circa 1920′s, lovingly hand restored and hand laid. The subflooring and framing are all made of salvaged, vintage long leaf pine.
Her loft is 8 ft. x 11 ft. and fits a double standard mattress. The ceiling/head height in the loft is 5′ ft. She comes complete with a custom made loft ladder.
She is plumbed for water lines for Toilet, bathroom sink, and can have a tub or shower. Septic/waste lines are not included, as that installation depends on your final location and attachment to septic or sewer.
She has a kitchenette area which has a built in gas cooktop (small RV propane bottle) with a mini fridge below. (included)
She is wired for standard residential electric, with 8 double outlets.
She also has 1 ceiling light/fan wiring and 1 front porch lights.
The ceiling light is new and the porch light is vintage stock.
The Farmhouse’s exterior is clad in vintage Pine Clapboard wide wood plank siding. Her upper roof is corrugated metal.
Her paint is in fine condition; she is currently in a seafoam/blue green with pink trim and yellow window casings; her earlier color was baby blue with white trim. You can see how a change in paint color totally alters the look of this farmhouse! Be creative and paint her in your own style!
Her roof is vintage tin metal panels in a corrugated style from Texas origins.
She comes with a wide covered front porch, 5′ x 10′ with a covered top that does not hinge, created from 5″ wide floorboards, which has 2 vintage porch posts.
• Matching Stair steps up to porch with handrail can be crafted, for an additional fee.
• She can be repainted – body, trims or both – for an additional fee, with our special milkpaints or organic paints with no VOCs.
