Amazing views have been a hallmark of many of our recent projects and this one is no exception. Poised looking over the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Elk Rock Meadow subdivision this home is designed to capture views and enhance livability. So many of our clients understand the importance of design for flexibility, energy efficiency, and durability and this home features all of these. This Blue Ridge Mountain home highlights and enhances the beauty of Virginia.
We work hard to balance the budget and aesthetic goals with building science facts. Sometimes you want to capture views with lots of glass and therefore you have to enhance the insulation in other parts of the home to maintain comfort. Working through a custom design process we find the answers to “what life do you want to live in this place” and develop a home that enhances that goal.
Added to the idea of custom solutions that enhance livability, we incorporate building science knowledge to make a home comfortable and durable. Over the past year, indoor air quality has become a major point of discussion. We look at how the home can “clean” the air you breathe, what materials are being used that might off-gas chemicals, and where those air leakages might happen to reduce infiltration. This focus on building science and functionality of space creates solutions that when incorporated with aging-in-place design concepts create homes for a lifetime.
