The Blue Ridge rustic barn home, named for a province in the Appalachian mountain range, mimics the historic dogtrot style home. These dogtrot, possum-trot or breezeway houses were common throughout the southern states in the early and mid-1800’s as farmhouses and cabins. The design feature most notable to these homes is the covered porch, or breezeway, that acts as a natural cooling system during the hot summer months and was a typical hangout for the family dog – hence, the term ‘dog-trot.’
The Blue Ridge includes a fully-engineered living space that features your choice of four, front entry layouts detailed below. Choose from an offset or centered gable entry in models A and B, with timber-style window awnings for a mountain cabin aesthetic. Models C and D offer a covered porch that wraps either partially or completely around the living space; offering a western feel with an open country porch.
