An End of an Era, but a New Beginning at Innisfree Village

An End of an Era, but a New Beginning at Innisfree Village

Construction is wrapping up at the newest group home, The Meadow II, at Innisfree Village, a voluntary community for adults with intellectual disabilities.  This will mark our last project with Executive Director Carolyn Ohle who retired the summer of 2015 after being with Innisfree since 1976.  Carolyn has been a joy to work alongside in the completion of multiple projects at their beautiful, 550 acre site in Crozet, Virginia.  The latest home, The Meadow II, replaces the very first home built at Innisfree and will house 8 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms for residents and caregivers.  The design was driven by the special needs of the residents conveyed by Carolyn who, from experience, was able to show us which design features work and don’t work in previous homes.  The home has a zero grade entry and the first floor is wheelchair accessible.  The home design blends both private resident rooms and large community spaces such as a first floor dining room, living room, and screen porch, and a second floor loft.  The project was put out to bid and awarded to Strauss Construction.  Construction will be completed early 2016.
