The owners of this home, being constructed in a wooded setting in northwest Ohio, were very clear in their instructions as to its design and layout. The over-riding requirement was to stay as true to the early New England period home style as possible while taking advantage of the benefits that new technology offers.
Lynn and the owners designed this home with authentic characteristics such as lower ceiling heights and a steeped pitched roof common for the period. An over-sized all masonry fireplace with separate oven will be the central focal point of the interior and exterior as well. The interior decorating will follow the theme with s4s casings and base as well as an all wood stair case with simple balustrade and wide wood plank flooring.
The home will have an attached two-car garage and will also have a very large workshop attached for this dedicated hobbyist. The workshop will be heated with in-floor radiant hot-water heat. There will be a small office/den in this area which completes this “mother of all” man caves.
With the use of vinyl siding and polymer modified asphalt shingles, this home will offer nearly maintenance free performance. The home, when complete, will have 3 bedrooms and two and one-half baths. The master suite will contain his and hers baths and walk-in closets.
