Consider this project one with an unconventional beginning, yet with a happy ending. An American client living overseas was planning a home for their retirement but started the process while living in Europe. Moreover, they came into the project committed to building a new house with a framing system we had never used for a residence – a post frame building, and the design process occurred solely through online video meetings, another new process for us.

Despite being an uncommon choice for a new house, we embraced the task and were committed to following the rules of the system and the tight budget, while seeking ways to elevate it beyond the conventional. The iterations demanded a reduction to a singular form reminiscent of the surrounding agrarian structures found around the veiled rural site. The 17.5-acre site is a deliberate departure from their years living in large metropolitan areas around the world. Besides large windows orchestrating a breathtaking natural view, the industrial open truss system permitted a two-story living area that connects to an office and master suite hidden in the attic truss system.

With a willingness to take on a new challenge and the latitude to create an interior that is spacious, smart, and the owner’s touch of sass, we were part of a story that yielded a 3,050 square feet home to a happy couple and their two dogs. We also gained new friends.
