One last look at the exterior before moving inside. Three types of wood are used on the exterior: for siding, for window frames and for structure. The structure is the most impressive, comprising the columns and beams at the porches and the beams below the overhanging roofs. The articulation of the columns and beams is particularly nice in the way they are created with paired members.
The execution of the house appears exemplary, especially considering that Barzenick and her husband acted as general contractors
on the project. "I handled the home construction, and he handled the most important aspect: the finances," says Barzenick. She further explains that even though they opted for something contemporary over something traditional, the overall process went smoothly: "I was very fortunate to have good subcontractors who were just as excited as me to work on something different."
