Former advertising copywriter and self-taught designer Tom Givone took on the difficult job of resuscitating a 200-year-old homestead nestled on the edge of the Catskill Mountains. The stunning Floating Farmhouse is the result of four years of experimentation with materials, a great location, and Givone’s magnificent taste and historically sensitive restoration. A perfect mix between the old and the very new, this stunning glazed home features a cantilevered porch that makes the farmhouse ‘float’ and reflect itself on the tranquil waters of a creek.
