A Decade of Design

For Jon Roemer and his family, we have just completed a project for their home in Princeton that has been 10 years in the making.

Well... actually a series of projects...

In 2000, Jim was asked to look at the rear side of the house. It is a split level and the rear patio was a raw concrete at grade level:

Plan-1
The new design added a more graceful rear stair, a roomy colored concrete patio with wide steps down to the grass, a airy entrance to the lower basement and a new corrugated sheet clad storage shed:

Plan-2

This project was finished in 2001:

The rafters have a cut profile that is supposed to be "R" shaped. They look like happy faces eating ice cream:

Mid-decade Rich designed a new kitchen, foyer and entrance for the house:

Plan-3

Our website has many of the photos of this one, but the tall skylight form is a striking feature:

Last year Jon asked for a place for his studio adjacent to the patio. This, final, project has just been completed:

All the walls (and roof) are construction of SIP's with HardiPanel siding, with Galvalume metal trims:

It is quite cosy inside and sit comfortably in the rear yard:
