Are you able to give dimensions? - I find this home simply charming. While I know you can't give out the house plans, would you be able to tell me what the dimensions are on the living room and kitchen along with the pitch of the roof? Everything seems perfect about it.

I love the fireplace surround! What is it?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Most of the wood came from mid-19th-century barns. The oak ceiling timbers came from a Minnesota barn built in the 1860s; the pine boards, from another Minnesota barn built in the 1870s. The flooring came from a Wisconsin barn built in the 1880s. "The joint details were something that our office researched and drew into the details of our architectural drawings, based on old traditional timber framing details," says Murphy.
