ICF walls are complete at Silvopasture Farmstead in St. Paul.
For sure you need to check-out the updated project story complete with new Owner-recorded drone videos!
We are so happy how Grandview is turning-out (nestled in the trees).
The pre-existing tree canopy and lakeside location is such an idyllic setting.
So much work goes into dreaming and creating a work of architecture. Working with our clients to come-up with the design concept, then the key details may only get you 25% there.
You have to have really great communication between Owner, Architect, and Construction Team from beginning-to-end to get you to the finish-line. We are almost to a-hundred!
The lumber price explosion has been a hot topic for about 9 months, and the story continues.
Up to now, we have blamed COVID mainly, but also the cold weather event in Texas. But there are some other factors at play also, per this attached article from Visual Capitalist.
These extraordinary events and costs are certainly affecting the construction industry. However, all indicators are telling us that the design + construction markets remain as hot as ever. How much will these circumstances affect your decision to renovate or build new?
We are not sure we have achieved this level of precision previously. In fact, our trim carpenters told us that due to the intensity of the details on this project, we can only do one like this every three years. We must have worn them out!
We can’t wait to wrap the final 10% and share. This is a must-see, so please come back for a look later in the new year.
Now that our excellent clients have moved-in to the Bridge House, they brought along their curious friend who stands watch!
Next it’s time to work-out the little kinks, including furnishings. As art enthusiasts and collectors, Lance and Laura have made it a priority to furnish both interior and exterior with art – starting with this friendly fellow.
He seems friendly yet curious, exuding just enough authority to help keep the peace.
Also, interior finish selections are in-process and coming together nicely.
Soon to follow on exterior are exterior cladding, front porch structure, carriage house, lanai, upper bridge, outside grill station, and in-ground pool!
Regional Modern Farmhouse design + pricing is underway and just about ready to spring forward into construction.
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!
In brief, this stately French Provincial-inspired estate melds traditional + modern design influences fitting for the neighborhood and client tastes.
We’ll be keeping up with progress on the project page, so be sure to check back for updates!
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!

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!
Modern Colonial north of Coxhill Gardens in Carmel is now complete!
After about a 16-month construction process, the much anticipated move-in process finally began in late mid-October 2018. For sure, after our clients have some time to get settled-in we’ll share more of the interiors. In the meantime, we’ll be adding design process and renderings to the story as a placeholder. HAUS helped client with comprehensive site planning and architectural design concepts, including a detailed interior design vision.
This project is rooted in tradition, but distinctly modern. Please check-out the story here.
At last, we are excited to report that the new minimalist modern house at Indian Head Park is substantially complete!
In this case, we helped our client by conceptualizing and clearly communicating a comprehensive design vision inside and out. In effect, this bold design leadership helped give client confidence to proceed forward with community approvals, building permits, and construction.
On Thanksgiving weekend, we were able to stop by for a visit to check-out the latest progress Please check out the story here!
Construction on Bridge House in Douglas, Michigan has commenced!
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.
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.
Easter at Clearwater is a bit cold and overcast, but client is excited about celebrating Easter 2018 with family and friends in her newly minted custom interior. This project is the latest major renovation project that we have completed at Lake Clearwater. Check out the project page for the story – we’ll be adding updates and project photography later in 2018 after the warm weather arrives and we are able to finish the exteriors.
