What Houzz contributors are saying:
“We started with the old pristine portion of the house and then worked out from there,” says Crisp. The new addition is set on pier footings so as not to disturb the roots of the existing oak trees on the property.Wherever possible, Crisp emphasized energy efficiency, utilizing geothermal heating, soy insulation and old wood and stone. “Using reclaimed materials not only gives you a wonderful patina, it’s very green, without having it in your face,” he says.
