Vacation House:
White Mountains

A modest budget and limited waste water capacity dictated a simple two bedroom house. The efficient plan is comprised of open living area on the entry level with a master bedroom loft above and a bedroom with family space below. The exposed post and beam construction is sheathed with structural insulated panels, thermally sealing the building and eliminating conductive heat loss through framing members. Mountain views are optimized through triple-glazed, operable windows. An open deck on the downhill side, wrapping to the uphill entry side, will be constructed in the next phase.
