The first of the PLACE houses completed, PH-1 is an expanded PH Large with an additional Accessory building featuring parking for two and office space above. Built for a busy family of five plus dogs, the stock design was adapted to create a 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath open plan home that’s stylish, durable, colorful and fun. Solar domestic hot water supplements household systems and entirely heats the backyard lap pool; green construction saves money and resources, and the house is always filled with natural light, fresh air, views - and friends and family.
This Quaker Bluff Cottage project was awarded a 2009 Excellence in Architecure Honor Award by the Vermont Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Designed by Birdseye Design Architects.
