New England Farmhouse

When we purchased this house, which was built in 1805, on a quaint road called White Oak Hill, everyone thought we were crazy!  The 2,900 sq ft house was full of junk... but in our eyes it had great potential.  We hauled five 30-yard dumpsters filled to the brim to the waste facility with the contents of this house. I also auctioned off enough old treasures to pay for the soapstone counters and all those dumpster fees.

 This place was great. I think for the budget, it finished well.

 Oh yes, the barn... We restored the old post and beam structure to its original condition and installed a full workshop.

  1. However, you should keep in mind that securing the necessary permissions for an ICF house is likely to take longer than that for a regular home. In the home building sector, approvals may be more challenging to get because of this unusual feature. Everyone involved will have an easier time since a licensed builder is more likely to be experienced with this procedure (and presumably faster). In addition, unless you are a skilled professional in the area, we do not propose ICF houses for those who wish to manage things independently.
