Modern farmhouse features a cool indoor slide in Texas

This amazing modern farmhouse was playfully designed for a family with three children by  in collaboration with Oliver Custom Homes, located in Austin, Texas. The main highlight of this home is its multi-purpose laundry room, which at the request of the homeowners, was intended to provide fun for the children. Aside from a laundry space, there is also an entry drop zone, home office and sporting gear storage. The playful part of the design was a slide, designed to give the children a fun way to access the mudroom exit and laundry zone.

The slide also acts as a laundry chute. “We looked high and low for a company that would make a steel slide,” architect Tim Brown says. “We found this company that makes oversized slides for firehouses big enough for a grown adult to use. The kids have mastered the talent of walking up the slide barefoot with a snack in their hands. It’s pretty impressive. Note: The slide is not intended for dogs — even though it’s tempting.”

What We Love: This fabulous modern farmhouse features plenty of natural light, with a spacious and airy floorplan. Love all the outdoor living spaces, an expansive swimming pool… and the outdoor shower. Our favorite feature is the laundry room slide, plenty of fun for kids! … Readers, what do you love about the design of this home? Please share in the comments below.
