This is a large house, although it is actually a fairly modest size house with some extra pieces. It was designed for a young family with space for a business to be run from home. They also wanted an indoor pool. That’s a lot and the challenge here was to keep a manageable scale. It’s so easy to let this get out of control.

Shown here are some of my favorite parts, the use of handsome woodwork as seen in the stairway and study and in the roof design with it’s generous and straightforward bracketed eaves. Perhaps my favorite is the sauna, a tiny building that holds its own with the much larger parts of the house.
