Forest Hills "Contemporary" Under Construction

If you've followed our work at all, you probably know that there is not a "signature style" to our work- and that we do our best to tailor our designs to the individual clients that we've been fortunate to count as not only clients, but friends as well....so, here's a design for a client that didn't want the typical "Nashville" house. We will update the project as we get closer to completion, but in the mean time, here are a few construction photos. Our friends at Castle Homes are doing the construction and interiors.

Franklin Tennessee Renovation and Addition

Here are a few construction photos of a renovation in Historic Franklin, Tennessee- there have been a few bumps in the road, but the home is finally dried in and will begin drywall work soon. The nearly unusable, "compartmentalized" previous floor plan has been transformed into an updated, more open, contemporary plan. Still a ways to go!

The Hunt Box, Giles County Tennessee

The Hunt Box project started in Franklin Tennessee when the clients purchased a structure known as the "Cotton Gin House" (or the "Blue House" because of its distinctive blue vinyl siding), then over the next several months coordinated its move to Giles County Tennessee, in the heart of Hunt Country. We split the house into two programmatic pieces- the story and a half piece with its front porch (which had been moved once before) became part of the main house, and the older, rear portion became the guest house. On the main house, we used the "old" part of the house as a bar, den, and an upper level bedroom, and added a "dog trot" section as an entry and dining room, and added a gabled form to the back which became the pantry/mudroom, kitchen. half bath, and Master Suite. The guest house was separated as a stand-alone structure, slightly angled from the main house, and designed to include a bedroom/living area, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. Existing finish materials were used wherever possible on the interiors, augmented by reclaimed wood siding and flooring in the "new" additions. Here are a few pictures of the almost finished product.

 Update!!!! This project has received an Award of Special Merit from the Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County Tennessee. See more about this organization Here: http://historicfranklin.com/

A "New" Greek Revival Home in Williamson County, Tennessee

We designed this Greek Revival inspired residence, located near the popular village of Leipers Fork Tennessee, for a family relocating to the Middle Tennessee area. The "farm" complex will eventually include a barn as well, that will sit at a picturesque angle to be viewed from the rear veranda and pool area. The home is being constructed by Castle Homes, and the landscape architecture/design is by Gavin Duke of Page/Duke Landscape Architects. Here are a few construction photographs of the project.
