I took a shot at writing down my own thoughts about the Greenfield project I?m doing for my wife?s folks. Sometimes I have so many half-baked ideas in my head that writing them down creates a jelling effect and helps me to clarify and focus my efforts. I?m planning on documenting this project to a much higher level than I have …

From the archives – Grumpy architect time: 1.If your house is adequately insulated there should be little temperature differential between the ceiling and the floor. 2. Adequately differs from code. Remember, a house built to code is the worst house you can legally build. 3. If you choose not to build an Energy Star certified home please give your poor starving architect the $2k …

Grumpy Architect time for those readers who have missed that aspect of my musings! Although I have generally been fairly happy-go-lucky as of late, I thought I?d pull off a bit of a rant. Marlboro College ? just a few miles up the road from where I live- recently completed a set of five residential ?cottages? to be used, I believe, primarily …

I?m working on detailing out a smallish house in Greenfield, MA. We probably won?t go full Passive House on this but we will look at what additional costs and detailing it would take. And if we?re close? We are doing some novel (to me) stuff for the shell of the house that, I suspect, will become more standard practice for me in …

I am working on a 1400 s.f house in Massachusetts. Given that the walls are over a foot thick, the actual square footage is quite a bit less (about 1200). The extra insulation (and cutting edge building science) allows us to forgo a heat system other than a relatively inexpensive minisplit – and monthly fuel bills. Here are a few images …

Some photos from the Perry Road project which is sitting empty and unfinished and for sale – (It’s hard for people to earn a living around here so the owners made the decision to move to where they could work.. for money) This is a Structural Insulated Panel (SIP)house on and Insulated Concrete Form foundation (ICF) The windows are Marvin Integrity – …

I grew up in Maine with a large wood cookstove similar to this one. Cooking in it was sketchy and it was far from tight or efficient. The top surface and oven provided excellent places to keep pies and already cooked food warm on Thanksgiving. My own home has a small efficient and relatively airtight woodstove tucked into the stone fireplace. It …

The Day I Became a Modernist?Guest Post by the Architect’s Wife There was a time in my life when I would not have uttered the word ?modernist? without an accompanying sneer. My aesthetic tastes then ran toward the?dilapidated. If it was old with a sagging roof, I liked it. Bonus points if it looked like it might fall over any minute. I …

AmesHill October29 from Robert Swinburne on Vimeo. This one will have a bit of a rustic Scandinavian feel to it. And be super-insulated of course.

One of the projects I’m working on is an addition to and renovations of a ski home in Vermont. The main house is well built and and other than a maroon and pink bathroom and rather 80′s finishes, we are not doing anything too major to it. We are locating a family room addition between the existing house and garage which will …

I was just emailed a link to this really excellent tiny house infographic and it seemed worth sharing. I would add to this the community building aspects of the tiny house movement. Click to Enlarge Image Less Is More:The Tiny House MovementInfographic by CustomMade

Just a quickie about thermal bridging and air sealing. I can explain it in way fewer words and terms and scientific-ness than what you find when you go looking for information on the web. Thermal bridging is when there is too much stuff that is not insulation in a section of exterior wall. This includes most traditionally framed houses. Especially near …

Every few years we we take a vacation! This time around it was to visit Seattle to say goodbye to my wife’s family home which will be razed to make way for a bunch of poorly designed condos. The house is on a double wide lot in the Madison Valley neighborhood. The house itself is a nice little craftsman that would otherwise …

Kent and I have worked together a bunch in the past and we are working on a project currently. This is a lovely little project that illustrates how using a few very high performance products can allow us to reconsider how we use materials elsewhere, often going back to more traditional materials. Note: I had nothing to do with this one. I …

A House for Slow Living The original concept came to me in a dream (yes ? I dream architecturally) I think the dream may have been generated by this image which has been on my bulletin board fora few years: The original sketch was called ?a house for food? The core concept was centered around the growing, preparation and consumption of food which lends …

I did something for myself! Soon, we will be faced with fitting two kids in one small bedroom in our small house and I had some ideas spinning around in my head about how to make our limited space work much better. Size isn’t everything – it’s how you use it. These two images are packed with lots of little moves …
