Extensive Listing of Home Features & Details:


This fully custom home was designed as a ranch that, while traditional from the outside, emphasized to its’

fullest an open plan that incorporated space usually underutilized as hallways into the living area of the house.

In addition, using traditional framing techniques and a steep pitched roofline, additional living space could also

be harvested on the second floor. Also, by taking advantage of a 10’ front to rear grade change of the site, a

large full height basement could be incorporated.


The selection of materials used in the exterior of the home are concrete based products designed to minimize

long term maintenance problems. The siding and trim are Hardie shake, soffits and planks. The windows are

aluminum clad, the exterior doors are metal clad.

The exterior design of the home was complementary to the neighborhood – the interior is full of surprises.
