The Fort Worth Farmhouse
I met homeowners Phillip & Sarah over a year ago when they called me in to discuss an addition and full remodel to their residence at the time. After a couple months of contemplating options, they realized in order to get a large lot with mature trees and plenty of room for their kids to play, they would have to consider moving. Phillip told me about a 1902 farmhouse just south of highway 20. The property included the large mature trees and the land Phillip & Sarah were looking for. We walked through the house during the option period, and began devising a plan for the remodel & addition of the new (old) home.
On my initial walk-through of the home, Phillip pointed to a sepia toned arial photograph of the farmhouse taken in the 1900’s. I didn’t have a real perspective on the age of the home until it occurred to me that Interstate Highway 20 hadn’t even breached Fort Worth at the time the house was built.
One of the benefits of my job is that I get to work with people who prioritize their interiors and who have a great appreciation for design. Through this collaborative design-build process, I come to know my clients on a personal level. It gives me incredible happiness to experience the effects of interior design through my clients’ point of view.
