Carr Farmhouse Moving Along - Catskills Real Estate

Farmhouse #9, tucked away on 4 acres in Barryville, NY, is moving right along. With the siding completed, the house is really taking shape. Lot of porches, lots of windows, lots of privacy, lots of gracious country livin'.
This design was inspired by a 1870's farmhouse in Cochecton NY, owned by my friend Amy. Really classic and simple lines. The Cottage Red siding gives a nod towards Arts & Crafts. The walkout basement with windows gives the owner lots of choices for future use.
This house has over 650 sq ft of exterior covered porch space.

Like I said before, this house should be finishing up in late February. Next week we install the electric switches and lights, then the floor sanding and finishing begins, and from there we install all the toilets, sinks, kitchens, doorknobs and the million other pieces and details that make it perfect.
The race between the birth of a new baby and the completion of the house was garnering a lot of interest, and Vegas was reporting the odds on favorite was the house completion - 3-1 odds for the house, with an over/under of +2. However, since some things are more important than others, we've decided to delay the closing of the house for a few weeks while this family welcomes a new addition.
