A New Modern Ranch

IMG_2867You all know I love a ranch house, but my affection just went to a deeper level. I’m ready to make a committment if NC state will allow it. David and his client are creating an updated version for today. Yesterday, I stopped by for a quick visit.

The home is being built on what was an empty lot in an existing neighborhood of fifties ranch homes. As both a designer and builder he was careful to maintain the scale and elements of neighboring homes. Context influenced him to included the garage, picture window and front porch. Get the idea? Caribou Comp 02The house will be approximately 2000 sqft and include four bedrooms. The back of the home has a recessed patio with a wall of doors that will open completely to dissolve the barrier between interior and exterior. His client hired a friend to fabricate the custom metal door.

Unfortunately, given the mud and my designer tennis shoes I did not get inside. However, I’ll be back and better equipped the next time — so stay tuned.
