Knox Residence, Phase 2
The main house is a single story structure. It is stick construction, with details that give it a solid post and beam feel. This includes beams in the kitchen and dining room, and thick 9″ walls with double-insulation that also creates very deep window openings. The home’s living room, kitchen, and dining room are a completely open L-shaped plan, hinging around a wood stove that I sourced from a company in Canada. The stove is open on both sides, and can be enjoyed from the living and dining room. While there were many schemes that went into the home’s design, this configuration was one of the original elements and was returned to in the end. The house has a bedroom wing, exercise room and bath, and study which opens onto the screened porch. The house has a solar array, providing solar hot water and electricity. The main house was completed August of 2015.
The following documents some of the process that’s gone into creating Phase 2 of the Knox Residence.
