The Modern Farmhouse: Shiplap & Other Trim Ideas

Woods Architecture LLC & Seven Development collaborated on this modern farmhouse residence in Arizona with spectacular results. They incorporated the crisp clean lines of shiplap & a modern aesthetic; Then blended it seamlessly with the nostalgia of a classic American farmhouse. These guys live by the creedo ‘Make Craftsmanship Great Again,’ (see a walk through of the build in progress here).

SELECTION OF MATERIALS FOR THE FARMHOUSE EXTERIOR

While not approved for siding applications; WindsorONE’s Protected shiplap boards do have a 30 year Warranty against insects, rot and mold, it’s durable for exterior soffits & porch lids. The Gold Indoor Air Quality Rating makes it safe to carry that look right inside. *NOTE, WindsorONE products are not recommended for any siding applications. Here’s a list of appropriate uses for WindsorONE Protected Wood Trim Boards, if you have any installation questions, we want to hear from you!

STORAGE & BUILT-INS

Plenty of built in storage was included on this project. A mix of colors and functions, all pull together to make the space work. Stain grade shelf accents, wine storage as geometric art, strategically placed lighting.. and they left the shiplap uninterrupted, (nice touch on black shiplap storage wall!)
