|New England Country Church|
The mini Country Church, inspired by the many steepled churches that are cradled in the valleys of Vermont and New England.
|Vermont Covered Bridge|
This design was inspired after the floods in Vermont that destroyed or damaged so many of their unique covered bridges.
|Salt Box Design|
The design of my Salt Box is inspired by the Prentis House at the Shelburne Museum. I knew this building intimately when I was the Project Manager there. We upgraded the utilities to make it a safe public space and the museum curators and I reinterpreted the interior spaces.
This design is modeled after the early English Barns found all over New England. These early barns were constructed in bays of three. The center bay was used for thrashing grains, with the side doors open so the wind could carry away the chafe. The cupola would have been added in later years.
|Cape Cod Style House|
The Cape Cod design can be found all over New England and New York. It's a basic timber frame and most likely built by early settlers. This classic design has a full first floor with a smaller space on the second floor.
|Village Train Station|
This is another design inspired by the train station at the Shelburne Museum. Note the overhang on the roof that was designed to shelter travelers from the weather.
The one-room schoolhouse evokes nostalgia for many of us. It reminds us of a time when school children attended their local country schools and they all knew one another. There were usually a bank of windows in these schoolhouses, designed to allow natural light in.
