Thistle Hill Farm farmhouse-living-room

Thistle Hill Farm

Located upon a 200-acre farm of rolling terrain in Western Wisconsin, this new single family sustainable residence implements today’s advanced technology within a historic farm setting. The arrangement of volumes, detailing of forms and selection of materials provide a weekend retreat that reflects the agrarian styles of the surrounding area. Open floor plans and expansive views allow a free-flowing living experience connected to the natural environment.

Photography by Werner Straube.

Real Sliding Hardware
Love the way you hanged artwork above with sliding hardware! Looks great! If you need more sliding barn door hardware give us a call. We have a nice variety of finishes and styles.

Lovely home! Would you be willing to share your wall colour?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Another sign was sawn in half and used to create sliding barn doors in a rural Wisconsin home.
The homeowners found the large sign at a salvage place (look closely at the upper-right corner of this photograph and you’ll see the other half). They sign halves silde along barn door tracks and serve not only as art but also as doors between the bridge and the master suite.
