What Houzz contributors are saying:

Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: The Dogtrot House
The serenity of an all-white interior, exposed roof structure, and side walls that open make this living area cool and calming. When designing a home, vernacular precedent like the dogtrot house can offer time-tested lessons of introducing light and air into the center of the home.More: The L-Shaped House PlanLiving La Vida Local
For that reason, while the style and materials mimic the design of the main house, many were left a little unfinished and often cost less. The kitchen in the previous photo, for example, is from IKEA.
LightnessPainting the framing members white or off-white preserves the textured interplay of light and shadow but raises the vertical dimension of a room significantly. Not surprisingly, it also reduces the “hat” effect that natural wood finishes in a ceiling plane can sometimes create. This space feels clean and minimalist, but not without interest and detail. White framing members can often feel cottage-like regardless of the scale of a space.

White framing members can often feel cottage-like regardless of the scale of a space. Robert Young ArchitectsSave to IdeabookEmail Photo The interior architecture isn’t competing with the surroundings here; the monochromatic interior treatment suggests a deferential attitude. Subtle details of connections and individual boards are the only architectural adornment in this space. This doesn’t, however, equate to boring. The space is confident and full of nuanced interest. The shadow of the exposed element paints delicate lines of gray shadow on the white ceiling
