Designed for friends who bought a beautiful piece of land on the side of a hill in Columbia County, this home embodies the phrase ‘Simple can be better’. We were given the mandate to design a small home on a budget, but to also give it style and grace. Another strict requirement was to include a dramatic steel staircase and keep it simple. We always welcome a design challenge and set about our work. In the end, we accomplished those goals and produced a bright and comfortable home well below the average market building cost. While being schooled in modern design, it is less frequent that we get the opportunity to express our modern design credentials. This project both excited and fulfilled our clients and ourselves.
