Regional Modern Farmhouse Simmering

Regional Modern Farmhouse design + pricing is underway and just about ready to spring forward into construction.

This new modern house dubbed Back40House, will be located in Markleville, Indiana.  Our client’s family has owned the property since the 1800’s and we’ll be sharing that story.

So be sure to check back for updates to this project, designed by HAUS with construction management by WERK | Building Modern.  We have started a project page to share ongoing progress.

Wood Siding Underway at Bridge House

Exterior wood siding installation is underway at Bridge House in Douglas, Michigan.

Here on the elevated porch we can see how the west fin-wall and soffits are coming together.  Soon thereafter, we’ll be installing the industrial metal panels in extra dark bronze and black.  Now that rough-ins and drywall are wrapping-up, we’ll be sharing the fun stuff (exterior + interior details + finishes)!

We are working through the finer details now, including final interior fixtures, finishes, and bridge details.  Stay tuned for more updates!

Bridge House Rough Framing Complete

We are happy to report that framers have completed most rough-framing at Bridge House.

February weather was “brutal”.  Now that windows are installed and with even colder weather coming, it’s time to focus on inside work.  Indeed, the upcoming week’s forecast says highs in the low-teens.  Let the craft rough-ins commence!

See the latest project progress photos in the project page here!

Open Riser Architectural Stair

Open riser architectural stair is now complete for Lakeside Modern Cottage.  In fact, this is just one of many custom details for this major renovation project.

Heavy timber treads are Eastern White Pine with water-based polyurethane finish.  Stringers are Poplar glue-ups in satin black.  Cable-rail system is assembled from a pre-manufactured kit-of-parts.

Most certainly, we’ll be sharing a lot more in the coming months as our clients settle-in.  Lake Lemon will be hopping this summer, so check back!

Lake Lemon Update

Lakeside Modern Cottage at Lake Lemon is nearing completion and will be ready for 2019 boating season!

Without doubt, we are grateful to our clients for the chance to collaborate with them on comprehensive architectural design, interior design, and construction management (CM via WERK | Building Modern).

As a result, this project is realizing the full benefits of direct, daily communication between Architect, Trade Contractors, and Client.

Most certainly, this comprehensive project leadership ensures design + construction alignment, including evaluation of design opportunities and alternatives along the way!

In fact, concrete piers are now well underway.  Please check out the project page for progress photos.

HAUS’ comprehensive design process has clearly communicated design options and solutions for client review and approval. 

For that reason, client and construction team have less unknowns to worry about during the construction phase.

Auto House

Vintage muscle cars  make themselves at home in this new Midcentury Modern auto house completed in the Lakeside Woods Neighborhood within the Traders Point on the northwest side of Indianapolis; one piece of a master plan to comprehensively update a 1950’s Mid-Mod property.

HAUS designed the structure to compliment the original residence in form and style.  Chiefly, garage provides abundant natural light for showcasing client collection while doubling as a party barn.

The new freestanding structure is what you see from the primary residence elevated open-concept living space, so it’s not just garage, but new property focal point.

Lake Michigan Cottage First in Series

We are excited about Lake Michigan Cottage currently in preliminary design.  This is one of a series of residential wooded + lakeside retreats  from southern Indiana to western Michigan that we have underway in design or construction.  This particular bridge-like concept touches the sloping site very lightly and capitalizes on the best views to Lake Michigan.  We are really enjoying the rigor/design exploration comparing how nature, program, and personality sculpts each project in a unique way.  We’ll be providing project stories in the near future, so please check back for updates!
