Project Details

Ellicottville, New York
Steve wanted to build a ski home for his wife and four children at the same resort he spent his winters as a child. Faced with a typical narrow, steep and wooded lot, he engaged a few architects in a design competition looking for a solution and team he could work with. The chosen scheme tucks the garage at a half level between the walk out lower level and the main living level. A guest area, recreation room and ski room occupy the lower level. Separate boys and girls bunk houses are found above the garage a half level above the kitchen / living / master bedroom floor. The grey hemlock board and batten siding and as found barn timbered porches and brackets sheltering the entries blend with the bark of the surrounding trees.
