We began this project by challenging the previously selected building site. Knowing the client and their extended family we knew sunlight was important. The final building site was based on a clear understanding of how the sun would move across the site and through the house. This narrow, one room width house is part of a cluster of buildings. The interior levels of the house work in conjunction with the site. Opening at different levels and providing multiple views to the mountains beyond. A large skylight covers the main stair volume, providing natural light to the central location of the house. A light, open stair brings you up a half level to the master suite. The bunk room and loft area provides space for the family's children and their friends to play and sleep. A nautical netting system strung from exterior wall to loft provides the perfect place for the boys. A blend of rustic, heirloom, and modern furniture creates a welcoming interior that reflects the family’s style while remaining deeply connected to Vermont.
