This is country living straight out of a romance novel or a Meryl Streep film. In this countryside, there are no broken heaters or scary woodsmen or bugs the size of your hand. This Eldred, New York renovated house originally built in 1820 was rebuilt using only local materials. The pastoral beauty was built by hand and assisted by horses and wagons. The Floating Farmhouse is now an elegant fusion of new and rustic, modern and everlasting.
"As a designer and builder, one of the most effective methods I have discovered, in addition to seeking the sweet spot between uniqueness of material and ease of application, is to peel back layers, expose what is inherent to the structure, and incorporate it into the final design; add by taking away."
