Greek Revival Farm House, Campbell County, Virginia

On Falling River in Campbell County stands a Greek Revival farm house. The detailing, the materials, and the massing reflect a rural Virginia residence of 1850.  The house, though, was designed 159 years later and was constructed in 2010. Doric columns, a deep entablature, wide corner boards, projecting dog ear headers, standing seam roof, a cellar access, and simple detailing well document a style so prevalent upon Virginia’s soil a century and a half ago. The interior consists of antique wood flooring and moldings of the period throughout the home. While the home was designed to replicate a less hectic period visually, it was essential that modern conveniences be installed throughout with an open kitchen, a gathering room for entertainment, a master bedroom suite, children’s rooms, screened-in-porch and a parlor… to hint at the past.

"Many builders claim to be "custom," but Custom Structures is one of the few that do true custom work. My wife and I envisioned a house that was built with the craftsmanship of the 1800s -- real wood siding, hand crimped metal roofing and reclaimed heart pine flooring. When we described the project to prospective builders, most looked at us as if we were crazy and tried to talk us out of our plans. Ron, Scott and Jimmie at Custom Structures did not blink at any of our requests, even the most unusual ones. Instead of talking us out of what we wanted, they figured out how to make it work. We highly recommend Custom Structures, particularly for anyone who wants a true custom build."
