Design Statement |A limited buildable area with multiple low-hanging limbs presented a design challenge on this corner lot. In order to render a solution that was sensitive to the tree canopy, a limb survey was sought to outline an overall design. Low-pitch roofs and the recessing of rooms allowed the structure to hug the tree canopy while providing maximum living space. The screened porch off the kitchen is the heart of the home, with a fireplace and view of the historical village green and the May River beyond. Inside, the open floor plan presents a great space for family gatherings, while the four bedrooms and bunk room provide ample sleeping quarters.
