Cove House

From the rear of the house, one can see straight through the glass walls of the main living space to the water beyond. The two wings of the house form an outdoor shaded area, with a wood burning outdoor fireplace.

While we need to respect the privacy of the client with regard to the specific numbers, a house of this type could typically cost anywhere from 300 to 500 dollars per sq foot. Its a broad range because so much is determined on the level of finishes, and where one does and does not decide to go with the more expensive choices versus the simpler, more sensible ones. Every project achieves its own individual balance in this respect, while keeping the whole feel consistent. Hope that helps.

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Give Me an ‘H’
Clear Separation of Public and Private SpacesOne of the most basic design priorities of any architect, designer or homeowner is the need for separation of public and private functions in a plan. In fact it was the genesis for the medieval variant over 500 years ago. An H-shaped plan naturally accomplishes this quite well.Private wings sit at either end of a central hall, which is seen here rendered in glass. The central hall typically is used for gathering or circulation. Here it’s used for both.

ike most architects, I am a perpetual student of the floor plan. I find it fascinating to trace the roots of a particular configuration to its origins. The roots of the H-shaped plan, in the vernacular hall house of medieval Northern Europe, are especially interesting. More specifically, this layout was often called the double-ended hall house.

semi transparent Cabot sealant, in 'natural'. I have to say, though, that cedar does of course tend to silver out over time. To keep this looking 'new' the owner will have to apply a bleaching product and then re-apply the 'natural' tone cabot stain.
