Nice Feature: The skylighted ridge beam must have been inspired by E Fay Jones.

Certainly unusual. The large sheets of glass, the various skylights, the absence of ridge beams are all noteworthy, as is (I suppose) the brick. The "broken" roof over the kitchen and a bedroom I do not understand.

The "broken" beams in the roof and sunroom are a joke.
...bad joke

I'd wait for an explanation before passing judgement---but one doesn't know whether to think that an addition (or subtraction) was the cause, or some other
culprit. The immediate impression is of something one would find in a country-themed restaurant or bar ...? It's certainly jarring, and at odds with everything
else we see there.

It looks too contrived to have had any sort of natural origin. That roof was built that way. Perhaps it was meant to be a joke? At any rate, it would be fixable, costly but not impossible to correct.

Maybe the house is a remodel and expansion of an existing barn . . .

Very Happy
