A two-story section of the house contains the dining room/kitchen on the ground floor and children’s bedrooms
on the second. A sunroom is to the left, and the living room to the right. The hemlock outrigger under the peak of the gable roof is a reference to the block and tackle that once lifted hay to New England barn lofts. Here, the decorative detail serves to minimize the vertical expanse. Note the deep roof overhangs. A flat base of ipé was built into the granite terrace to provide an even surface for the deck furniture. The wood was left unstained to blend with the rock.
