What are a typical Indiana farmhouse and barn like?

I've mentioned the concept of a "typical" farmhouse and barn in LNDtH. For those who are unfamiliar with the look, I've posted photos and drawings on my Facebook page.

ADDENDUM: I've been informed that the link does not work for everyone. All photos and posts are accessible from the general Devon Layne page at

I spent a weekend with my friend Mike about seventy miles south of IU this spring. He's been farming there for fifty years. As soon as I mentioned the terms 'typical Indiana farmhouse' and 'typical Indiana barn,' he described these in almost the exact terms I used in the story. I know there are variations and that these are not the almighty archetypes, but this is what Brian and crew have to work with in LNDtH. Floor plan to come.
