This delightful structure sits within viewing distance of the main residence and was conceived as a guest house. From certain exterior vantage points it looks as if it has always been there; from others, it looks like what it is–a contemporary recreation of an American icon. The owners wanted a bright, airy environment; therefore all the white oak timbers were heavily white washed and the oak floors, were less so. All the walls and trim were painted white. The clients also wanted a minimalist aesthetic so things were kept simple and understated with just a touch of color here and there. LED uplighting installed on top of the plates and major purlins in the spaces between the rafters wash the ceiling with light and give the impression that the roof is hovering above the interior.
