New Construction

Cleary Road Residence

2135 SF

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom

This retirement home was built on family land with the goal of first floor living and comfortably accommodating guests. The first floor primary suite and office are on one side of the open concept kitchen, living dining rooms while two guest bedrooms and another full bathroom are on the other side with laundry room and mudroom from garage. Also included in this design is a welcoming front porch and rear screen room to extend the seasons with outdoor living.

Big Tree Lakehouse

2750 SF 

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath 

The first step at the lake was assessed this existing structure to determined if it was possible to renovate. We determined that  due to the low ceilings, years of temperature and moisture flucuations and desired orientation of living spaces that a rebuild was in order. We redesigned the first floor to provide lakeside living inside and out with the interior great room connecting to an expansive covered lakeside porch. The first floor also includes a first floor primary suite, a roadside attached garage with designated storage areas for lake toys which connects to a gracious entry with laundry & powder room.  The lofted upstairs includes an exercise room with lake views, with an additional bedroom, bunk room and bonus room for extended family comfort during lake season.

Valley View Residence

2350 SF 

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, walkout basement with attached garage 

This single story home was inspired by a floor plan the owners found online. As their retirement home they wanted the option of single story living with a full basement to expand into when family visits. We tweaked some key functional areas of their inspiration floor plan to include a first floor Primary Suite with laundry, open concept living areas, a screen room, guest bedroom and full bath on the first floor. The lower level was designed to accommodate 2 additional bedrooms and a bathroom if desired in the future, a family room with brewing station and ample storage.

Woodruff Passive House

3260 SF 

5 bedroom, 4 bath Passive House with Two First Floor Accessible Living Suites for Extended Family 

To better accommodate multigenerational accessible living and the desire to move toward a more sustainable lifestyle, we designed this passive house* with its 14” thick exterior walls, strategic roof overhangs, and European style windows  to appear as a traditional house.  The home owners were both excited to build to better accommodate the needs of their son, who uses a wheelchair, and their 90 year old father. Her goal was to create something that felt homey while he wanted a truly self sustaining homestead; together we figured out what would work for each of them! Our full architectural and electrical services were coupled with information from Passive House and Energy consultants and builders, and site harvested timbers result in a stunning, cozy feeling house with room for them all. In addition to 3 different primary suites to fully accommodate the family, we have a library nook, a lofted meditation area, generous mudroom, office, family room for football watching; all infused with much natural light.

*A passive house is a voluntary set of building standards that aim to create houses that are comfortable and healthy yet consume very little energy. This is achieved via five principles: continuous insulation, airtight construction, optimized windows, balanced ventilation, and minimal mechanical.
