Shaker home: Exterior and interior

Sidney John
3 months ago

We enjoy both the Shaker ideals of simplicity and beauty in the function of an object, amongst their other ideals that we also try to adhere to.

We are about to retire and would like to build a home in the country that adheres to Shaker ideas. A very simple home, rectangular, no ornamentation, energy efficient. An age in place home. A much, much smaller version of the Enfield Stone Dwelling.

I can find only one build that was featured in a Fine Homebuilding magazine that is of a similar mindset.

Has anyone done something similar in the past few years?

Any ideas?

Thank you
