Southern Homes

Hannah Sheflyand

Have you heard of Braxton Dixon? Until I started dreaming and searching for my perfect southern home I never did either. He not only does the planning for all his homes but the hard labor as well. His homes are known for being built with century old wood and trinkets from run down barns and other structures. Every single room has special detail with a story and no home is the same, it takes him up to 8 years to build a home.

Garden & Gun wrote a great article about his work and included some great photos (a preview below).

When I dream about the perfect home, I think of warmth, woodwork and lots of land. What about you? Do you dream of a home away from it all, in a busy urban loft or something completely different?

P.S.- Some more great homes here & here.
