    Default A modern farmhouse

    If you happen to be traveling through the Green Mountains of Vermont, you may be taken off guard by a decidedly modern interpretation of the classic farmhouse. Set on 44 acres of rolling hills and open farmland, this passive solar house, which won the 2008 AIA Vermont Honor Award in Sustainability and Design, manages to successfully marry vernacular architectural traditions with modern sensibilities. The home, which was designed by Pill-Maharam Architects, has a laundry list of green features, including a LEED platinum rating, a 5+ Energy Star rating, a ground source heat pump, high efficiency lighting and appliances, and a 10KW wind turbine that supplies all of the energy for the home's heating, hot water, lighting, and appliances. Its wind turbine ensures that the home has a net zero energy output, and results in zero carbon emissions — incredibly impressive.

    Like the wrap-around verandah. The interior looks like an Ikea catalogue.

    Love the fireplace, but it's kind of ill fitting next to the staircase.

    99,99% of houses here look like that. I really don't like that style, never did.

    i like it a lot, but it's a little lacking in character.

    I like it. It needs some personality-maybe so coo artwork would do the trick?-but overall, it's a nice house.

    It's so....... bland. The land is great. The house looks so prefab.

    The exterior is fabulous, interior not so much.
