Design & Engineering Services
What is the overall look and feel you want to achieve with your finished home? People are often drawn to the expanse that timber frames offer, however it’s important not to lose ourselves in all of that space.
As discussed by architect Sarah Susanka in her “Not So Big House” series, people crave psychologically comforting spaces. Pick up any one of Sarah’s books, you’ll notice a recurring theme: the importance of creating a home that expresses your “values and personalities...filled with special details and designed to accommodate (your) lifestyles.”
Susanka advises homeowners to design their floor plans with quality versus quantity in mind, noting that many homebuilders seek a design that incorporates beauty and substance, and at the same time utilizes sustainable building materials and techniques. Susanka’s books offer us refreshing input on creating a sense of comfort in our homes, often in a smaller and more useable floor plan than originally anticipated.
