Becoming One with the Landscape
This project took almost 2 years to complete due to the sheer number of details in the build. The owners and architect were all from Boston and came up bi-weekly or monthly for progress meetings. This meant that documentation and communication were paramount. Photo journals of progress were sent on a regular basis, phone conferences were the norm and each and every detail was discussed and approved prior to finalization. The main house is meant to look as if it is sitting behind a cascading rock wall. The barn (or "man cave") is nautically influenced and yacht inspired. Each have varying (but beautiful) aesthetics. Sustainable features include the following: geothermal heating and cooling, LED lighting and an air barrier membrane system.
