The house has the same scale and footprint as the neighboring houses in deference to the historic district. A shed roof opens the house towards the north, embracing the northern light. The street side is the public entry to the house, welcoming neighbors to the porch and garden. The design intent followed the modest program and budget, and allowed for a simple – yet dramatic – one story house. The owners lived on the site for over thirty years and wanted to build a new house. In keeping with the notion of "aging in place," the owners will live in the same place where they have lived for most of their lives.
