Shake-textured siding lends its eye-catching appeal to the front façade of this updated Craftsman-style cottage. Windows and a corner fireplace fill most of the rear wall in the vaulted living room, which is fully open to a richly glassed dining room. Owners' suite amenities include a roomy walk-in closet, deep soaking tub and double vanity.
An expansive great room and linked gathering areas give a surprising sense of spaciousness to this compact Craftsman-style home. Natural light spills in through wide windows that fill most of the rear wall in the living and dining areas. A peninsular counter rimmed by a raised eating bar is all that separates the kitchen from this bright space.
Crisp lines and sparkling window grids give a fresh clean look to this Prairie-style home plan. Inside, a bright and spacious gathering space comprises the living room, dining room and kitchen. The owners' suite boasts a dual vanity, totally private toilet, and large walk-in closet. Secondary bedrooms share a bathroom and have wide closets.
Uniquely versatile, this ranch-style plan can be seen as having five bedrooms, or as a three-bedroom home with a linked mother-in-law unit behind. A large skylight brightens the kitchen, which is partially open to both the dining room and vaulted living room. The covered porch that fronts the rear unit opens into a great room with a kitchen alcove.
Linked gathering spaces at the heart of this contemporary ranch-style home create a congenial environment for family living. Standing at the kitchen sink, you can keep tabs on activities outside on the partially covered patio or gaze out across the flush eating counter into the great room, where tall windows flank the fireplace.
While this country-style home plan makes an ideal retreat cottage, it is equally well suited for year-round suburban living. Linked family living spaces-living room, dining room, kitchen and den-encircle the central staircase that leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper level. Generously sized outdoor living spaces wrap around three sides.

Construction is in the "home" stretch on the Crestview (also known as the Barrett) hexagonal design. The clients are hoping to make the big move in February. We hope the final phase of construction goes smoothly and look forward to the final walk-through.

A lot of progess has been accomplished during the summer on the Barrett (formally referred to as the Crestview). You can begin to see just how well the hexagonal core of this design is ideal to take in all the beauty of the views from every living space through out the home.

The Barrett is the new hexagonal home plan created from the modifications that our client made to the original design, the Crestview. This beautiful home is perfect for the river view lot on which it is being built.

We are excited for the opportunity to watch the construction of our hexagonal Crestview design. The process began when Mr & Mrs B contacted us to modify the original design for their beautiful view property along a river. Revisions made were: reversing the plan, removed the loft, added a bay window at the great room, merged the office space with the owners' suite, added a guest suite and 3 car garage bay. The basement was customized to include a recreation room, bunk room, bedroom and shop area. The exterior was changed to include additional stone and wood elements. Check back to this blog often to watch the continued progress of this beautiful home. We invite you to post comments or ask questions along the way. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. B for providing us with photograhs!
Hiding behind a neo-classical Georgian façade is a two-level contemporary floor plan with bright and spacious hexagonal living areas at its core. On the main floor, a covered deck wraps around the exterior of the great room, which includes a large kitchen. Below, a covered patio spans the outside of an expansive recreation room with a good-sized kitchenette.
