BEACH ROAD

cabin fever

These clients approached us with a hunting cabin built in the 1940's. The house was in bad repair and was on a tight lot, but it featured a striking view of a pond across the street. Sixteen on Center reconfigured the interior layout, while keeping the overall mass intact. We added 6' to the face of the building for the sake of an entry sequence and circulation. The intention was to open up the living space volumetrically in order to give the perception of a larger living area. All of the heating, plumbing and electrical fittings were updated. For further efficiency, the gas boiler powering the radiant heat results in minimal heating bills. At the completion of the project, this old hunting cabin was brought into the 21st century with an icenyne filled roof, energy efficient windows and a tight building envelope. This compact home now boasts a covered sitting porch, multiple views of the pond, and custom Sixteen on Center carriage doors.
