From Pre-Fab to Farmhouse

A guest room tucked at the back of this Georgia farmhouse occupies part of the original structure, and a small addition creates a “sleeping porch” for grandchildren. Antique twin beds lend age to the addition, as do the horizontal butt board walls, wrapping casement windows, sliding French doors and painted wood floor. Together, these elements create the impression that the charming and playful space was originally a porch and later enclosed.

Yes, there are! Unfortunately, I am not sure what the interior designer ultimately selected for this room. The rest of the home is done in Sherwin Williams Elephant Tusk, but this looks a bit brighter than the other spaces.

Historical Concepts
Buttboard is simply wood boards "butted" up to each other, rather than tongue and grooved together. As you can see in the photo, the wood's imperfections will show through. We always specify real wood and the species depends on budget and aesthetic preference. Pine will likely be the least expensive, but will have a more rustic look with knot holes, etc.. Other species we've used are poplar and cypress.

I assumed that the knot holes that I saw with yours was meant to be and that was also dictated by the fact that you used a whitewash to let it show through. This is a Bob Timberlake house at Big Canoe as I said so I want it to look a little rustic. I understand that if you use a shellac primer, it helps with the knot holes. I believe you used 8" wide boards but it appears you used maybe a T & G on your ceiling with maybe a 4 or 5 ". By the way, I met you years ago at Sweet Bottom Plantation. I have been selling real estate with Harry Norman since 1979. I have always loved everything you have done!!!

Hi engine17, the sconce is a handcrafted design by a local artisan.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to The Comfy Lake House Rule Book
Lake House Rule No. 8: Maximize space. No closets, no room for a nightstand? Not an issue at a lake house. Make the most of the wall space by mounting reading sconces and hooks. Add drawers or boxes under the beds for undies, jeans, T-shirts and other folded clothing.
Butt boards on the walls and beadboard ceiling give the sleeping porch a cabin feel."We all wanted the house to feel genuine to this place," Pylant says. The new house is comfortable and welcoming, and looks like it's been growing on the property for the past hundred years.
