Boston Architects: Eck | MacNeely Architects inc.

Designed to sit on a flat Plateau overlooking the Connecticut River, this two story house takes full advantage of the sweeping view while its minimized scale decreases the impact on the natural wooded surrounding. There is also a great distinction between the public and private areas in the residence. The house turn its back to the public or front entry by allowing few windows or view to that side. The Garage and master suite anchor the front of the house further shielding the private living areas from public access. By contrast, the private or rear side opens up greatly with multiple windows and an outdoor seating area.

Becky Harris added this to Country Modern: A Balancing Act
I use this picture all the time; I cannot help from adding my dream country house to ideabooks. Perhaps its an unconscious Oprah vision board kind of thing.
Becky Harris added this to Cottage Bliss
There is a bit of a modern Hansel and Gretel feeling to this glowing cottage in the woods.
Just an example of a traditional/contemporary mash up ("Mash Up" - can you tell I've been watching "Glee"?)
Becky Harris added this to A Honeymoon Cottage for Edward and Bella
Perhaps the couple would like to have their cottage nestled between the woods and a field, so that Bella can admire Edward's skin glistening like diamonds in the sunlight.

January 14, 2014
Building our own home is an incredible and inspiring feeling. We note down our thoughts and put it on paper. We have lots of ideas and we want all of it to happen in our home. We want a big kitchen, well lit indoors, greenery in the hall, huge bedroom with a good walk in wardrobe to fit all my clothes, and the list goes on. At this stage all our thoughts are subjective, how do we define big kitchen, what is huge bedroom, how large should each be?
