On the outskirts of Horace, ND, rests a beautiful farmhouse surrounded by woods that was built by Jason Carpenter of Carpenter Homes. Surprisingly, this house was not built 100 years ago. It is one of five luxurious featured homes in the 2018 Spring Parade of Homes. Now, you can catch a sneak peek of the stunning interior and be sure to read future issues of Design & Living Magazine for a complete tour of this historic home in the making.
Quite the Project
The homeowners met Carpenter about three years ago when they purchased one of his homes. Then, they reached out to him again to build their forever-home in Horace. Before breaking ground in late 2016, several things had to fall into place. “It took eight months to do the land deal. We’ve been working in this house for about 17 and a half months, so it’s been quite the project,” said Carpenter.

A Sneak Peek of the Stunning Interior
In case you missed this home during the first weekend of the 2018 Spring Parade of Homes, here is a sneak peek of the stunning interior for you to enjoy.
Ten-piece crown moldings help the living room a stately impression. Carpenter and his crew used decorative moldings throughout the interior as a call back to the elaborate woodwork found in turn-of-the-century homes.
The foyer makes a statement with its grand staircase, 25-foot ceilings and a gold-plated chandelier. To the left of the entrance is a room with beautiful wallpaper.
The kitchen was a collaboration between the homeowners and Katy Krehlik of D&M Industries. One of the crown jewels of this room is the whiskey-barrel-inspired island.
For these homeowners, the butler’s pantry was a must. Small touches like the beadboard ceiling make you feel as if you are standing in a real farmhouse.
For The Parade
Although this home photographs beautifully, nothing can compare to seeing it with your own eyes. We have only included a select number of rooms in this preview, and there is so much more for you to explore during the 2018 Spring Parade of Homes. The Parade runs through the first weekend of May from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. A shuttle will be available to transport guests from the main road for their convenience, as private vehicles will not be allowed past a certain point. If you are unable to attend the Parade, be sure to read future issues of Design & Living Magazine for a complete tour of this historic home in the making.
