Albemarle County Custom House – Update

Work continues on this house designed for a lifetime in Northern Albemarle County just north of Charlottesville. From the no-step entry to the high-performance design elements, careful thought was put into this design solution.

Careful consideration was made to set this home on the site in a way that it blends with the surroundings. The colors are pulled from nature and the slope of the land dictated the location of the home. Working with the talented Jessica Primm for landscaping solutions and David Collins for grade modifications were key elements to getting it all just right for location, views, and accessibility.

The exterior materials are intended to be low maintenance to reduce the time needed to maintain this home over the years. From cementitious siding, simulated stone, to the metal roof, this home will not require much work on the weekend.

The interior has framed views throughout including the loft space which has the feeling of being in a tree house.
