Construction continues on this Keezletown custom home

Construction continues on this custom home in Keezeltown, VA, just outside of Harrisonburg. The compact floor plan works to facilitate the life our clients want to live on this beautiful property by minimizing wasted space and connecting to views. We nestled the house into the topography and sculpted a variety of outdoor living spaces.

The upper level of the house, or first floor, features a covered front porch, sunroom, and will eventually have an exterior deck around two sides of the house. These spaces all combine to frame this amazing view while giving plenty of access to be outside in covered and shaded spaces.

The footprint of the home is compact featuring two bedrooms and one bath of the upper level and a wide open floorplan allowing for a variety of furniture layout options. As we continue to see the cost of construction rise, we are working harder than ever to make sure the design decisions we are making maximize value and quality of life.

As I continue to figure out ways to live in a time of COVID, this generous client allowed me to meet my two high-school interns on site so they could see drawings vs actual construction happening. We all practiced safe distancing and wore masks and of course arrived in individual cars. These two Eastern Mennonite High School students have been doing a virtual job shadow with me meeting once a week online to learn more about the profession, software used, and how to think about design. It has not been perfect, but we are doing everything we can to continue with tasks we enjoy and mentoring students brings me a lot of satisfaction. I am thrilled their school has found ways to continue to enrich their students experiences this year by allowing this virtual job shadow opportunity.
