Vermont Custom Builders of Barns & Homes

VERMONT HIGH COUNTRY RETREATS

Traditional Home
More and more, the Vacation Homes and Country Retreats that we build result in so much more. Thirsting for a quiet pace and lush greenery, our customers enjoy their homes full-time as soon as life allows. Unlike temporary visitors to our state who enjoy our natural amenities and leave, owners of our Vacation Homes and Country Retreats love and appreciate all that we have here. As builders, we're aware that our customers may have different needs and uses for their homes in the future, and these are concerns that we address in the planning stages.

House also has a garage with a breezeway, and a separate Grand Barn with finished play loft.

Londonderry
Seeking refuge from the storm (literally, as Ed and Kim reside in Southern Florida) they decided to build after their first visit to Vermont. By choosing low maintenance, pre-stained vertical siding and standing seam roofing, more time is available for relaxing on the patio that overlooks the babbling brook. Kim's artistic perspective added interesting tile work on the gas fireplaces, stained glass in the cabinets and varying shades of paint colors. The antiqued, engineered wood floors are installed above the efficient radiant heat that runs throughout.

We received raves from the architect as we tackled the challenging roof system one very long winter as well as appreciation from the homeowner dealing long distance with numerous decisions and details. Architects Letter


Andover
Pete and Carolyn transformed our 20' x 24' One Car Barn into a uniquely livable Vermont hideaway. The walls and ceilings are dressed with pine while the dormer at the rear enlarges the master bedroom loft dramatically. The tractor was left outside leaving room for their yellow lab and an occasional guest. The favorite sitting spot, however, is outside on the full-length porch overlooking the pond and drinking in the smells and sounds of the surrounding woods.

In the summer the porch and deck offer viewing of the wetlands below and occasional critters while the winter months inside are warmed by a cast iron woodstove. Reliving his days as a young boy coming up to Vermont George had dreamed of this, and now this rustically-decorated log home shares happy times with three generations. A log rail adorns the stairs and the interior walls are pine-paneled throughout. To increase the square footage and create a "kid's space" the owners finished off the basement level. Anointed the "Cozy Cabin" for obvious reasons, the drive from down country is never fast enough for these fans.
