Project 1217, a contemporary cottage. When an empty lot close to downtown came up for sale I jumped at the chance to do a ground up build. I didn't want the home to stick out like a sore suburban thumb in a humble historic neighborhood. The roof lines, massing and fenestration match that of the homes around it. In fact, I still drive down the street and miss it because it blends in with the surroundings. The narrow lot and no parking in front posed some design challenges that we had to consider, but I came up with a great solution that created and outdoor living space. This was a terrific experience and I'm so excited for the new owners.
