SPRINGFIELD GUEST HOUSE

Springfield Farm, in Fauquier County near Middleburg, called upon J. Tucker to tackle a very interesting project - convert an old farm milk cooling building & ice house into a guest house for the modern farm.

 

The ice house, with 2-foot thick fieldstone walls, and a wood frame hay loft upper floor, was converted into a guest house that includes a dining area, kitchenette, sitting room, and two bedrooms.

 

Replacing the goat milking parlor is new south facing covered terrace with a view of the surrounding farm fields and ponds.

 

Hidden beneath the back of the goat shed J. found a typical fieldstone wall which was about to be bulldozed along with the rest of the shed. Knowing that this wall would be a natural asset to the guest house grounds, J. stopped the demolition to save the wall.
