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! Framing is complete, rough MEP is complete, and windows and doors are being installed; exterior siding and drywall will follow. The pool has been excavated and is in progress as well.

Standout Details: Oak hardwood floors by Exquisite Surfaces; custom white oak siding; 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.
