Angwin Country Estate
A Finnish soapstone stove was built-in into the center of the home to provide warmth. Steel trusses and windows were added to provide some visual detail and appeal. A trellis was added to the front entrance to add depth and texture to what was otherwise a very plain façade. Other features include recycled rustic flooring, non-toxic 0 VOC paint, organic insulation, and recycled corrugated metal roofing from an old barn. The property also has a large garden shed, or studio space attached to a large chicken coop. Ultimate, the goal was to take a dark box and transform it into an open, light-filled space that connects to the surrounding landscape. The result is a country estate with creative rustic flair.
