A younger couple wanted a French Country home with an internal motorcourt. Easy enough…
The lot sloped 80’ from front to back. We essentially had to carve a flat spot into a hillside in order to fit the property. Fortunately, what followed was a house plan that was designed around the best features of the lot; the view. We also didn’t have much of a staging area for materials, so there were key logistical challenges solved by a Bobcat and a set of pallet forks to move materials around as we needed more space.
We were also building on a hillside out of concrete, with curved concrete walls. In the end, the house turned out very well.
We successfully morphed a hillside into a livable and comfortable residence for our clients. Years later, the house looks great perched on the top of the lot. We’re very proud to have designed and built that home.
