@marsia and @dreamhouseforsomeday thank you both so much. Yes, the photos in John Hill's Ideabook are all from my home. Since the photos were taken (2012), the house has many more layers (rugs, furniture, art etc) and is definitely not as clean (thanks kids, dogs, cats, husband). We've added a pool to the back which ties the porches in nicely. Maybe soon, I'll update my page with a few new photos. Happy 2014!

If you post more photos, could you post to this discussion and let us know? I would love to see what else you did - we would like to incorporate an endless swim spa pool some day and would love to see how you joined the pool to the house. Happy 2014 to you, too!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In the architect's words, the house is "sited carefully on 30 acres of beautiful pastures. The site provides multiple opportunities to reflect itself to the various corners of the property and offers constant viewing opportunities as one moves through the house."The first couple of photos, showing the front of the house, reveal how it is a contemporary update of the traditional traits I mentioned: Pitched roofs are present but shallower than is typical, porches wrap the exterior, and wood is the primary cladding. The varied roofscape and the ins and outs of the exterior walls hint at the fairly laid-back nature of the plan, which prioritizes views, shade and the layout of the interior spaces.
