New Home with Gambrel Roof


This plan layout for this new home was the product of our wonderful clients' request for a home with every room an "every day" room.  By wrapping the plan around an active courtyard with trellised enclosure in the front and a screened porch room and grand terrace in the rear, all the spaces were designed to flow one into the other and open generously to the landscape as well.      Recently completed, please check back for updated photos.

A home where we can use every room every day.
