A farmhouse is the main building and living quarters of a farm.

Farmhouses serve as a residential building in an agricultural or rural area. As stated in their name, they generally are surrounded by a farm or similar environment. Many of these structures are shaped like a T.

Farmhouses tend to more practical than they are aesthetic. They are insulated and stocked with food, allowing productivity and survival to come more easily in these rural areas. The house is almost always placed near the farm in question so as to allow ease of access to the livestock and/or crops, increasing productivity.
