Clark Road Update

Exterior siding work is nearing completion on this project despite the winter weather.  Exterior siding materials used are standing seam metal roofing panels, Douglas Fir wood, and two colors of Eter-Color cement board siding.  Eter-Color is a high-density cement board with the color integral to the material (solid throughout) that requires no finish.  It is installed over rainscreen strapping with a reveal between each panel.  The result is an exceptionally durable and maintenance-free siding. Interior finish work is underway, progress shots coming soon.

Clark Road Update

A few snowy images of the Clark Road project.  As beautiful as the snow is (and as great as it is for skiing), it does present some challenges for construction work.  A bit of energy each day is devoted to shoveling and staying warm.  Despite the snow and cold weather, progress continues.  Exterior siding work is nearing completion, electrical and plumbing rough-in work is moving steadily along and insulation work has begun.  In the studio, we are busy with design and detail work for the interior finishes.

Clark Road Update

Exterior siding and roofing work continues at the Clark Road project.  The exterior siding materials are standing seam metal and high-density solid-color fiber cement board rainscreen cladding.  The color is integral to the cement board and there are no surface coatings required (paint or otherwise) which makes for a very durable maintenance-free siding material.  The gray colors of the metal and cement board contrast nicely with the exposed fir beams and complement the natural setting of this house.

Great progress continues on the Clarke Road project.  Windows are in and the standing seam roofing work has begun. The metal roofing wraps down on the walls of the north elevation and on the wing walls of the living room deck.  The charcoal gray color of the roofing contrasts nicely with the warmth of the exposed fir (and the fall foliage colors).

Framing is well underway on the Clark Road project.  This week, the cantilevered fir beams were installed for the first floor deck and walkway.  Framing of the first floor system will wrap up this week.  Framing of the first floor walls will begin next week.  Preliminary backfilling is complete and the garage walls and roof are framed.

On the Boards: Clark Road update

Thanks to the unusually warm Vermont winter, site work is moving ahead steadily on the Clark Road house.  The drive is in place and preliminary excavation work is complete.  The blasters were on site this week to clear up some ledge.  Final prep for foundations will begin next week.  Meanwhile, design work continues at a feverish pace in the studio in anticipation of construction.....

On the Boards: Clark Road

Take a look at these schematic design images of a new house that's in the works.  This house has an interesting program with a great site and promises to be an exciting project.  The site is a south-facing hillside with the drive following an old logging road that winds up the hill.  The house is designed to be parallel to the site contours to maximize southern exposure and minimize site grading work.  A series of terraces will tie the house into the landscape and create a variety of outdoor spaces to enjoy the beautiful property.
