New House ND2thePond - Final Pics

Final Construction Photos of the New House Next Door to the Pond.

The New House Next Door to the Pond
This was an interesting project on a unique site for an environmentally-conscious, active family.  The building is super-well insulated and efficient, organized along a long East-West line to allow in the sun with a screened/sun porch on the west end near the pond and a three car garage on the other end tucked behind. This house is built of quality materials, oriented on the site appropriately for sun, wind, and views, and designed to live large without being over-sized.

In a year or so, I'll contact these clients about coming out for final portfolio photos. In addition to pictures looking better with furniture and art on the walls, it makes sense to wait a few seasons for the land to recover and the hardscape (walkways, etc.) to be installed and the landscaping (plantings) to get established.
