MODERN FARMHOUSEEclectic and Witty Decor Meets Modern Architecture

Driving up to Roger and Chris Stout-Hazard's ultra-modern home, you expect that the interior will mimic the exterior: modern and minimal. Upon entering the home, it's evident your expectations were wrong. Cold minimalism is nowhere to be found.
The 1,500-square-foot home feels much larger than its footprint would suggest. Twenty-four windows fill the house with light, and the high ceilings give the loft-like structure an airy, breezy quality. The homes of their neighborhood were all designed and fabricated with budget in mind, resulting in a bare-bones aesthetic that could quite easily read one note: modern.
Feeling that an all-contemporary look was too "generic," Roger and Chris went in a different direction. "We keep calling it a 'modern farmhouse,'" says Roger, star of A&E's Sell This House and Sell This House: Extreme. This label is spot-on.
