Inside A Colorado Amish “Mini-Ranch” Home (22 Photos)

Something unusual today. I managed to find a listing for an Amish home in Colorado (not currently for sale). This won’t remind you much of other homes we’ve seen (at least not on the outside). This is the Westcliffe community in Custer County. Not a lot of Amish in the Centennial State – only five settlements, most just one church in size. With few other…

A 91-Acre Amish “Cattle Farm” & Home (13 Photos)

A 91-Acre Amish “Cattle Farm” & Home (13 Photos)

This is the largest and most expensive of the properties we’ve seen from the batch of 7 Amish homes on the market in Fleming County, KY. While we’ve looked at a couple of small houses and even a 21-acre “baby farm“, today’s property could be considered more the real deal as far as Amish farms go (“grownup farm”?). Its size, at 91 acres, is a…

Inside A Small-But-Spacious Amish Home (22 Photos)

I’m a little puzzled by this home. It’s listed as having five bedrooms. But we don’t see any of them in the photos provided. We do see, however, other rooms, which are quite airy and spacious. This one is from the collection of 7 Kentucky homes for sale, which we’ve been looking at the past several weeks. It reflects the area’s hilly terrain, built as…

Inside An Amish “Baby Farm” Home (26 Photos)

I hadn’t heard the term “baby farm” before coming across it in this listing, and I’m not sure if the Amish would use it themselves (I doubt it). But that’s how this home, one of the seven Hillsboro, KY Amish homes for sale, is described. It looks like “baby farm” might just refer to its size – on a 21-acre parcel of land, it’s not…

Today a closer look at another of the seven Amish homes for sale in Fleming County, Kentucky. This little Amish starter is by far the smallest of the bunch, at just two bedrooms and 768 square feet. It actually looks more like a small shop from this angle which I shared in the original post. Here’s a different angle that gives you a better look…

Inside An Iowa Amish Home (19 Photos)

Inside An Iowa Amish Home (19 Photos)

This is an interesting Amish home. The outside looks like the home of a family in a plain or plain-ish community — but the inside suggests otherwise. The place is Bonaparte, Iowa (Van Buren County), a settlement of two church districts. The exterior design of the home is a very simple boxy architectural look, which would coincide with plainer churches. Not too many design frills…

Look Inside A (Very) Plain Amish Home (25 Photos)

Look Inside A (Very) Plain Amish Home (25 Photos)

“Kettle will not stay, neither will the windmill.” That was the stipulation attached to this unusual listing for an Amish home in the Seymour, Missouri community. This Amish home caught my eye for several reasons. For one, the community. Seymour is a plain settlement where many homes have a distinctive shingle-siding plain look to them (as we’ve seen documented in a recent post from Don…

Look Inside An Amish Log Home (22 Photos)

Look Inside An Amish Log Home (22 Photos)

We have a look inside a less commonly-seen home today – an Amish log home. It’s not that often that you find Amish families living in log homes. I’ve only come across them on occasion, though they might be more popular in certain settlements. This one is found in the Bonduel, Wisconsin community. The settlement is three churches in size, and lies in Shawano County,…

Inside A Plain Michigan Amish Farm Home (18 Photos)

Inside A Plain Michigan Amish Farm Home (18 Photos)

Today’s look inside an Amish home comes from Mecosta County, Michigan. This is clearly a plainer Amish dwelling, especially compared to the Kentucky home we saw last week. This farmhouse (listed on Landflip) is set on a large-by-Amish-standards plot of land – 170 acres. There are numerous outbuildings, barns, and even a guest house on this property.   Taking a look inside, let’s start again…

5 Types Of Lamps In Amish Homes (22 Photos)

Some photos in the latest Kentucky Amish home post caught at least one reader’s eye – showing a lamp in an upstairs bedroom which appeared to have a cord. Meanwhile, in the downstairs portion of the home, we saw more traditional examples of Amish lighting. So I thought it would be interesting to share with you examples of different types of lighting in Amish homes….
