This weekend we took a little trip to check-in on progress at the farmhouse. After a long drive down curvy back roads while enjoying the mountain scenery, we arrived to find things are moving right along. The driveway has been expanded, basement walls have been poured, and you can start to see the house come to life.

The house is nestled in between several hillsides and due to site grading issues and a future fit-out of the basement level, we needed to make some design modifications to the original plans. Originally the basement was intended to be unfinished, but after discussions with the homeowners we decided that it’s probable that one day the basement may be finished out for additional living space. We modified the plans to add windows and an entry door to the basement level, which required site grade revisions and changes to the elevations, all in keeping with the character of the house.

While on site, we also worked through some details concerning exterior patio space, retaining walls, a gated driveway entrance, access to a future pool , AND a recessed trampoline area! More details of that to come, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter and check back in on the progress. Until next time….
