Historic Redo – Part 1

This is a unique project… The Owners purchased a historic home that is beyond repair. The city is requiring them to replace the structure to match the original. They can then expand the home and remodel the interior. This project is ‘business in the front and party in the back’. Take a look and watch till the end – will be fun when completed!

Stillwater Residence – Part Two

Today we look at some of the interior design on this project. These studies are meant to be gestures and not necessarily the final design. We have found using these visuals is as helpful to us as we develop them as to the client -providing them something to react to. Thanks for watching!

Stillwater Residence – Part One

New project! In this video we take a look at the early design process. I typically do the early plan drawings by hand. This allows me to really think as I put pen to paper and not worry about making mistakes or testing ideas. We also begin to look at the exterior massing including window placement, textures and colors. Take a look!

Residence Master Plan – Part 2

Here is an update of a residential master plan we are working on. We generated a number of options – both interior and exterior. Since the work is going to be phased, we need to create a design that can be implemented in pieces. Take a look!

Project Update – Afton Home 2

The process continues! We start to refine the floor plans and begin looking at the exterior and interior concepts.
And, I thought I looked good in anything but I was reprimanded by my wife for wearing an old sweatshirt and mismatched teal t-shirt. I guess I should be grateful that she actually still looks at me!

Completed Project – Basement Remodel

Some friends of ours asked if we could come up with a concept to finish off their lower level. Its primary purpose would be for overflow entertaining and a place where the kids could hang out. We came up with some ideas and some basic drawings and they took it from there. I wanted to drop in and see how it turned out. Take a look!

Project Update: RCU Discover Center 3/16

Siding is going on, stonework is starting and Spring is in the air…and on the ground! What a mud-filled site. I thought I would do a quick update on the project. Take a look!

Hudson Remodel Part I

I am beginning a new project and thought I would document the progress. The home was built around 1910 with a subsequent addition in the back. The new home owners want to make a few changes some of which include remodeling the kitchen and dining area, open up/connect spaces on the main level, and create a new master suite on the upper level. This will be a fun project as the clients are great people! Take a look!

Project Update – Before & After

Project Update – Before & After

Some friends that I hadn’t been in touch with for 20 some years searched me out to help them remodel a home they just purchased. I love it! Besides the fun of reconnecting, they were looking to transform a basic stock house into a modern styled home.

We kept the same shape and bones of the home but with some simple yet bold moves of new siding, colors and a screened porch, the transformation has begun! On the interior, we relocated the entry and kitchen as the stock home had been placed with the ‘front’ actually to the back of the property. Industrial materials work in harmony with cherry and maple wood accents.

We are wrapping up the construction drawings and they have already tackled the new roof and some of the siding – just in time for winter!

Container Home

Cool design using shipping containers but what I really like is the animation by Amin Alwi. The context shown enhances the design experience. Relaxing and mesmerizing to watch. Presentation is important!
