A couple relocating from Chicago wanted a comfortable country house where they could enjoy their rural setting and share it with their extended family.
The kitchen, eating bay, and bedrooms all face south for winter sun. The main bedroom, on the second floor, opens to a deck over the screen porch. Architectural design included cabinets, wall paneling, and trim.
Rosenbarger designed a limestone patio and a gazebo after the clients had lived in the house for a few years. The patio’s protected location along the south side of the house extends its use into the cooler months.
