Faced with a mold problem that threatened their health, this family recently overhauled their Virginia farmhouse property with modern additions that made it livable once more. The 1970s farmhouse was not only restored, but moved to a separate part of the property altogether in order to lessen the impact on the surrounding natural resources.

Newly positioned to make the most of its access to the sun and using locally sourced, sustainable materials, the house showcases the best in environmentally friendly design and construction.

Prior to the renovations, the Virginia farmhouse's mold problem was causing respiratory issues for the family. While the core of the house was kept and used as the frame for the new version, the new, more modern design has made way for plenty of other wellness-enhancing features such as a yoga room.
