Custom Built Shed Home Ready For Finishing Near Franklin


One of a kind custom designed and built shed home. It is hard not to want to make this one your own as you pull up the driveway. This beautifully designed home is in the most perfect spot.  A ¾ acre stocked pond sets just beyond the front porch and all other sides are surrounded by crop fields, pastures and a creek. All of which you can see well from the 16-foot-high second story windows. It's obvious as you look around that the owners put a great deal of time and effort into planning the construction. They even included a spot for an elevator to be added for future use.  The structure is built on 6 inches of concrete with in-floor heat plumbed and set up into 3 zones for wonderfully comfortable and efficient heating. The subfloors are lined with 50-year plywood and the roof has 50-year shingles. The possible living space is currently in excess of 5,500 sq. feet with the option to add more over the garage. The garage currently has 15 feet 9-inch ceilings. A 75-gallon water heater is already installed.
