The project comprises a new barn and house built on a 150-acre farm just northeast of McKinney. A screened porch connects the 3,500-sq. ft. house to a carport and utility structure. The house is constructed of concrete block, cypress siding, glass, and galvanized metal. The house is oriented to optimize the view over a meadow and lower wooded area. The house interprets vernacular imagery and new technologies – such as structural insulated panels (SIP) on the roof – into a comfortable place to dwell.
