From the peak of its high gabled roof to the natural stone and cedar used in its construction, this rustic house, has the hand-crafted quality of mountain houses in the Appalachian region. Although designed with the rugged terrain and native materials in mind, the house could also be sited perfectly on a well-wooded lot.
From the exterior, the house recalls the sturdy and primitive look of a log cabin. Use of local stone, stacked in a random pattern, and wood siding blend the house into its setting. Behind the rugged exterior is a comfortable and informal plan, one that would serve a family equally well as a primary residence or as a second home.
