The Assignment: Our team of Greg Shain, Lisa Zeder and Joy Stowell started with us from day one, working together to design a new, open-concept, two-story farmhouse with garage attached by breezeway, a detached pavilion, detached gym, a pool and gardens. The first design of a larger home with a basement was budgeted, and then value-engineered: the final design removed the basement and the house was reduced.
Currently: Construction is underway! Foundation work has begun.
Standout Details: Oak hardwood floors by Exquisite Surfaces; aluminum doors and windows by Awake Window & Door Co.; reclaimed barnwood vertical siding from Delta Millworks; custom steel fireplaces, weathered shake roofing and steel pergola over exterior dining area.
Sustainable Features: Thermal insulation, efficient heating systems, tankless water heaters, energy-efficient appliances, PV solar panels, EV charging stations, permeable landscape, vegetable gardens, and a cistern with underground irrigation drip system to recycle collected greywater are intended.
