Valley Retreat Part 2: Main House

Once we finished the barn and studio on this property, the clients were ready to proceed with Phase 2 of their development: their dream home! The main house was situated a bit farther up the sloped lot for better views down the valley. The home is configured for main floor living, with a guest space and recreation area upstairs. The vaulted great room and loft area is filled with light from the expansive front windows. Like the barn’s studio, the style is slightly industrial and rustic, though finishes and details were more refined in the house.
