The Craig House, Mansell Hill Road
A large California-style ranch sitting atop a large hill
presents problems of privacy and scale. The wraparound wall successfully
anchors the house on the landscape. Then a south-facing crushed stone patio and
steps extends the human space out into the landscape, and a working mans back
entrance gives easy access to barns, snow-clearing and farm equipment.. Rooftop
drainage is broken up by stone "features" and the job of planting can begin.
