Residence on West Ridge Stowe, Vermont
Enhancing The Exterior Of A Post And Beam Structure
When our clients purchased an abandoned post and beam structure that had been sitting unfinished for years, they wanted to re-imagine, reconfigure and select finishes and furnishings for the interior of the residence (more on the interior). However, the exterior also needed to be enhanced so that it matched the upgrades made to the interior.
The front elevation was clad in Board and Batten siding and cleft stone to break up the verticality of the massing. Additionally, a grid detail in the front-facing gable was added to bring further interest to the substantial façade. A portico was designed, with the same grid motif, to provide shelter to the owners and their guests.
