The design process is done and the dirt has started to move. The Muddy Creek Cozy Cottage is now under construction in Rockingham County. It is an exciting time in the life of this new custom home. We have worked hard to make the house functional, right-sized, and cozy. There have been meetings where we talked about working in the kitchen and others thinking about views and topography. Now the fun really starts as the contractor begins putting our sections, plans, and elevations together on site.
The Muddy Creek Cozy Cottage is a place of relaxation and beauty. The details are delicate and will take care to get them just right during construction as they did in design. I am eager to see how the parts and pieces go together and if all the building science concerns I had during design are all that needed my attention. Right now, just the footings are dug, but soon we will have walls, glass, and a roof. Framing will take shape as a modest size home with breathtaking views through large expanses of glass. The firm is simple and the details are minimal making them all the more powerful.
As an architect, I am fortunate to get to dream along with my clients. I get to hear their goals and develop a plan to achieve them. This custom home on this site for these clients is special. With every creation, I invest emotion along with our clients. It is an incredible way to make a living. As I wait for the form to take shape, I am proud of what we have planned and thrilled our clients trusted me with their dream.
