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. Early conceptual design began with clean lines and honest materials to create a private and secure home that integrated interior and exterior spaces.

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.
