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!

One of our favorite publishers called this week, and will feature a story about modern lakehouse, “Esther” that they’ll release in April.
Concurrently, we had been planning a late winter trip to gather missing key shots. Equally important, we want to finish our own story about the project. Happily, we were able to get the missing information and share with the editors.
This was our second official collaboration with this most talented client – and we hope not the last!
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.
Esther at Clearwater is on the AIA Home Tour this fall in mid-September, so we hope we’ll see you there! Our wonderful client has been living in the home for almost a year. Final touches are rounding into shape, including some exterior details including new landscaping.
Midcentury Entry at New Modern House Ditch Road is nearing completion. Thermally-treated wood strikes again, in this case, thermally-treated Poplar makes an appearance. Check out the project page here.
Thermal modifying wood is a technology that improves the resilience of wood products used in exterior conditions and can be used on most wood species. Our client at #Copperwood inquired about the technology and if we could use it at their home – which we did. On that project, we used thermally-modified Ash. Client for this project was so impressed by the beauty and resilience after visiting Copperwood, they requested something like it here – in this case, thermally-modifed Poplar was used, provided by a local source who learned about the technology from HAUS/Copperwood.

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.
Midcentury Modern Renovation Begins in Meridian Hills Neighborhood, Indianapolis. This 1960 original Midcentury Modern home, purchased by our clients in late summer 2015, will be a whole-home remodel, including an overhaul of just about everything inside and outside. Please check-out the project page here, as we will be posting key updates along the way!
The design proposal for North Meridian Historic District Party Space transforms the backside of this home to make inside-outside connections. The party space is the main driver for this home design, which includes an all new interior, a new rear patio and grill area, a new outdoor pavilion space, and a space for pull-in Airstream/bar. The design concept works to enhance the existing traditional Colonial Revival design elements with a slightly modern interpretation to the rear. This is done by opening the new kitchen space directly to the inside and outside entertainment areas.
