Lewisburg Avenue Historic House Addition

 Here are a few progress shots of our Historic Remodel and Addition on Lewisburg Avenue, in Franklin, Tennessee. The front has not been painted yet, so here are some "before" pictures. The rest of the pictures show the additions to the back of the house, and the new garage/"carriage house" accessory in the rear yard. There are also a couple of shots of some of the details at the back porch addition. William Powell is the Contractor.

Liberty Farms House- A Modern layout with Traditional Forms in Williamson County, Tennessee

Preliminary Front Elevation Study
This "country" house was built for a repeat client (I had designed a retreat on Roan Mountain in North Carolina a couple of years earlier) that had a strong programmatic notion as to the general direction of the design. Luckily for me, they were willing to let me flesh out the design with little interference, and really deviated very little conceptually from the original sketches. The house, garage, and pool area form an "ell" around a natural depression that hosts several large maple trees that were left undisturbed. The exterior combines limestone, painted lap siding,
vertical painted board on board siding, cedar shingle, and brick, in various combinations to accentuate the architectural forms. There are large porches on the front and back of the house, bracketing the main Living Room, so that the space has a view to the front toward the street and a pasture beyond, and back toward the more private pool and terraces. A trellised hot tub area and screened porch complete the pool and terrace area. Stephanie Gilboy did the Interior Design (and much more) and Rob Tallman was the Contractor/Builder.

Monteagle Cliff House Progressing!

Well, the weather in Monteagle, Tennessee has been frightful- at least when it comes to building- but the Cliff house has been progressing slowly but surely. Most of the stonework has been finished, and it looks like a January finish. Here are a few progress pictures sent to me by the owners.

A Few Progress Pictures of the Cliff House in Monteagle

Progress has been slow because of the rain- which has been a bit of a rarity in the Monteagle area the past few years, so they'll deal with it!- but here are a few more pictures of the Cliff House. I am going down to visit next week, so I should have more photos of the exterior- and maybe some interior shots. In the meantime.....
