Juxtaposing building materials and mixing window shapes create architectural intrigue between this home and its addition. Although they were built at different times and feature radically contrasting materials and elements, they are connected by a playful use of angles and a passion for strong geometry. Americas home has a modest size floor plan that is just under 3,000 square feet, but its horizontal design makes it appear larger. The building envelope is made of Structural Insulated Panels, which are extremely airtight and help save energy costs. Plus, they are fully insulated and help muffle sound, an important feature for an open floor plan.
The clean lines of this contemporary home strike a warm balance between traditional and modern styling. Large windows provide wonderful views and plenty of natural light. A covered porch flows seamlessly into the gracious great room, creating a flow that emphasizes indoor or outdoor living. Generous nine foot ceilings enhance the already spacious feel of the main level. An open dining area connects to the kitchen with it is over sized island for food prep and informal dining.
