This project was a successful challenge combining passive design, high-end natural materials, and a limited budget. The owners had an explicit vision and worked with Chris Vlcek at Little Wolf Architecture to bring it to reality. They were lucky enough to have found Lukas Schwartz and bring him on to build it for them.
This house is modest yet divine. It is truly Blessed by the Woods.
The energy efficiency auditor posted an interesting blog on this project: New England Forest House.
