House 'Two'

This new residence sits on 50 acres overlooking the loess hills of Western Iowa. The homeowners request for the house was to have a rural, comfortable, casual California style with plenty of southern views overlooking the rolling hills. Large overhangs over the Living Room shade the windows from the sun. Main upper level balconies and patio allow for expanded living outdoors and views in all directions over the adjacent valleys. Bluestone flagstone was installed in Patio areas including the walkout Lower Level Patio. Exterior concrete stone wainscot wraps around the house and bronze metal standing seam roof areas give accent and interest to special windows of the house. All windows were designed with limited grilles to maximize views outside.

On the interior, the main body of the house incorporates prefinished, hand-scraped walnut floor with alternating boards. The Kitchen has a custom designed oversized Island with a bleached maple top reminiscent of an older furniture piece. The Master Suite is on the east side of the house to capture the morning sun and has its own Laundry Room adjacent to the Master Bath for ease of use. The Sunroom has an irregular stone fireplace surround to create a relaxed casual feel. Each room of the entire house is intended to have a very personal, casual, intimate scale.
