The central twelve-sided form of this house takes its architectural cues from polyform Shaker barns. Stand in the center of a ring of 12 posts where at your feet is a pebble and stone inlaid compass medallion and above you is a light-gathering lantern that catches the early morning and later day summer daylight. It is almost as if you were standing in a comfortable forest with a canopy of branches and light above you.
Compositions of large Pella windows and doors complement the vertical shiplap siding with a similar understated traditional/modern detailing. Among special noteworthy architectural detailing are the elegant sculptural, steel and "3-Form" riser fir stairway, the barrel vaulted living room ceiling, custom kitchen cabinets and light fixtures by Baselight and Hubbardton Forge.
In Our Clients' Words:
"Milford had remodeled the original house when we first fell in love with Stowe and was the obvious choice when that house was unfortunately the victim of a horrible fire. The new build was our opportunity to great our dream home and with Milford and his team there the process was as enjoyable as it was successful. Their roots lie in the vernacular style of Vermont and with particular attention to detail. A pleasure to work with and and as a self professed control person also a stress free experience!"
