Modern Rustic House
Moraine State Park is an amazing resource just forty-five minutes north of Pittsburgh. The large lake and amazing trails are some of the best resources in the region. Situated on a beautiful 100-acre site, adjacent to the majestic woodlands, was an existing post and beam structure.
The original post and beam structure was a kit from Yankee Barn. Our client requested the house be designed into a new modern, rustic structure with a new kitchen, master suite, great room, loft, garage and mudroom. Every room of the house would be upgraded to align with the new rustic modern aesthetic. New windows were designed to maximize daylighting and views into the state park. The interior design was intended to express the post and beam structure with a contrast of the modern white walls and steel accents.
Energy efficiency was extremely important to our client. We studied many wall assembly options and elected to utilize a hybrid model of rigid board outside of the stud cavity with sound batt insulation. The goal of the wall performance was to eliminate any potential for moisture to occur in the stud cavity. The exterior cladding consisted of reclaimed barn siding, weathered metal, and cedar accents.
