Jack is Happy about it

If anyone is Happy about ground-breaking at Back40House, Jack is! It’s always exciting to get a new project underway after a diligent design and planning process.

Jack didn’t even help with the design or permits, but he’s as excited as anyone (probably more) 🙂

Indian Head Park News

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!

Simple Modern Bedroom Wing

Simple Modern Bedroom Wing elevates over the landscape at dawn.  We are preparing this project for the upcoming home tour this fall, so if you are interested in seeing the project first-hand, please stay-tuned.  It sits on 20 acres and is not visible from any public street, so this is the time to experience #copperwood!

Keep Chopping Wood

Keep on chopping wood at Copperwood – client living the dream taking advantage of a warm February day – little farmhouse in the distance.  Check out the latest updates to the project page here.

This project was designed by HAUS and built by WERK | Building Modern, our sister construction management company.  It is interesting to compare the projects we build versus the ones we do not build.  This project is one of the most successful realizations of Architect’s design intent of all of our recent projects.  Design concepts and alternatives along the way received the benefit of Architect daily oversight and clear communication at each step of the process, which is a major benefit of direct collaboration between Architect, trade contractors, and Owner.  Direct, clear communication by less parties may also translate into less time, less cost, and higher quality.

Architectural Stair

Architectural Stair progress at Copperwood.  #ash #thermallymodified #stairlights #modern #architecture

To the left we were able to utilize the same thermally-modified Ash that was used for exterior cladding of bedroom and garage.  Then for the treads and risers, we used 2x structural pine to compliment the Ash and blend with the pine beams in the adjacent living space.  Handrail and guardrail above is black painted steel, and the translucent wall to the right is acrylic screwed to painted Poplar-wrapped studs (provides safety and diffused light).  Stair lights are evenly-spaced LED discs, connected to whole house lighting and smart-home system controlled via client’s smart devices.
