Building two homes for a special family within three years is a unique experience for Carbine & Associates. When you step into the latest Middle Tennessee farmhouse, the beautiful house is filled with gorgeous lighting, stone and barn wood accents and abundance of smart, inspiring building choices.


Inviting Farmhouse

Creative lighting choices is the new frontier in building inspiration. From the antler dining chandelier to the master bedroom nautical inspired fixture, the unique lighting choices add a creative dimension to the home. The kitchen’s soaring 18-foot ceiling lends itself perfectly to a dramatic choice for island lighting.

Building Inspiration

There are several builders’ favorite elements in this home which might inspire your own building plans including:

Providing Definition For Open Floor Plan

The homeowner cleverly chose to wrap the entry to the gourmet kitchen with stone. The view from the living room to the kitchen is stunning and doesn’t detract from the open floor plan.


Dramatic Cooktop

The cooktop has two stunning elements. Wrapped in brick, above the cooktop is a gorgeous barn wood hood inspired by Pinterest! The barn wood repeats the breakfast nook for great design continuity.


Sliding Barn Doors

Maximize wall space by reducing the number of doors opening into rooms with sliding barn doors. Used in several clever spaces in the home, there is a great blend of painted doors and barn wood used throughout the farmhouse.


Dutch Door Reading Nook

There is something so old school charming about a Dutch door. Located off children’s rooms upstairs, the space just calls for great rainy day reading time!
