Nothing prepares you for the ups and downs of home construction like building your own home. When you experience the challenges and successes first hand you begin to get an accurate perspective of what it takes to build a truly beautiful space. For Chad and Chell constructing their personal residence was the beginning of their business, Cambridge Home Company. On her Instagram account of the same name, Chell shares the many angles of her stunning gray-and-white farmhouse.
The home itself is built in the style of a Cape Cod farmhouse. It's exterior is clad in gray shingle siding and the large front porch is supported by four sturdy white columns. The second floor features 3 dormer windows that project from the sloped roof allowing natural light to fill the upper floor.
