“The way the sun penetrates to the farthest north corner of the first floor in the dead of winter is wonderful. We’re constantly aware of the light and move through the house to its rhythm and patterns.”


“Even when it’s cold outside the house stays comfortable, unlike before — there aren’t big drafts from leaks and cold air falling down the windows and onto the floors.


“What we both love most about the second floor is the sense of being tucked up under the roof. This is a dramatic contrast with the tall and broad spaces of the first floor. Where those are open and expansive, the second floor feels cozy and private.”
