What Houzz contributors are saying:

The land that Barzenick and her husband, Jay, purchased was 17 acres, though they were able to expand it to 32 acres after a dairy farmer retired and sold the property. With such a large piece of land, the siting of the house became not only important but also difficult — so much land to consider. First steps were renovating the farmhouse and excavating a pond for drainage and as a water feature. "Living in the farmhouse and looking across the fields, the land revealed itself to us and changed our thoughts about where to build the new house," Barzenick says.

Hammond is a town of about 20,000 people in Tangipahoa Parish, located one hour north of New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain. Like many of the parishes in this part of Louisiana, the architecture is predominantly traditional, marked by gable roofs, wood siding and porches, lots of porches. Brenna Barzenick, a lover of midcentury and contemporary architecture, dreamed of a contemporary and earthy home for her and her family. That dream came to fruition after she and her family purchased a tract of land close to their old subdivision and worked with architect Tom Pistorius to design and build a house that's contemporary yet still cognizant of the area's traditions. This tour documents the house shortly after construction, before the family of four fully furnished and moved into it.
