Blackwood House

It took several years of conscientious planning, and nearly a year of careful construction, but in 2018 we finished this remarkable modern home. Professional photography is forthcoming, but for now we can share some of our own photos.


The unique exterior features a patchwork of painted wood, cement board, and Cor Ten steel panels that will weather to a beautiful rust patina. An exposed heavy timber frame carport and entry provides shelter at the home’s entrance.

A simple grid of ceiling timbers frames the main floor, organizing the living spaces while maintaining the wide open volumes and marvelous natural light from the large south windows.
