Architect Jerry Caldari used 2-by-8 studs to give the ceiling height without the need for structural beams. The studs create deep pockets, which were packed with insulation for energy efficiency.

4. Modern Cabin in the Pennsylvania WoodsWho stays here: A former Army Reserves captain, his wife and their two kidsLocation: Shohola, PennsylvaniaA combination of hickory and metal siding brings a decidedly modern look to the exterior of this riverside cabin. Inside, the modern-meets-rustic theme continues, with heated concrete floors and a wood plank wall. Skylights and ample windows allow in plenty of natural light (and river views), while a massive library wall invites curling up with a book.See the rest of this cabin

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Is It Time to Let Basements Become Extinct?Mar 30, 2015

Basements affect interior health. Finished basements are tricky spaces to design in a way that prevents condensation and mold from becoming long-term problems. From a design perspective, the ground surrounding a full foundation is assumed to be persistently cool and wet. When we raise the inside temperature of a basement even just a little, somewhere between the finished interior and the exterior, there’s a point at which water vapor will condense — the dew point. If the dew point coincides with your finished wall assembly, water vapor will condense and mold will soon follow. There’s a saying here in Maine that the only dry basement is the one you don’t build.

This is where the homeowner likes to pace up and down, just thinking. All around Caldari tried to incorporate materials that require little to no maintenance, such as plywood and concrete floors, the latter of which are heated. “That’s the kind of thing an architect should bring to the project,” Caldari says. “A sense of design ability to use materials in ways that enhance the project in aesthetics and value. Anybody can make something look good. But does it work? And what’s the reasoning behind it?”He used 2-by-8 studs to give the ceiling height without needing structural beams. The studs also created deep pockets, which he packed with insulation to create a more energy-efficient structure. Metal bar joists, off-the-shelf at the standard length, hold 12 inches of soil and grass on the roof, creating more insulation that keeps the space warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Staircase up, love the openness of the stairs, feels like they are floating
