A Dramatic Double-Height Ceiling
One of the most challenging aspects of the project was raising and rotating the Main House’s central roof to accommodate a large cross-axial, gabled space featuring a double-height ceiling, two-story high windows and an expansive stone hearth. The light-filled room became the center of the house offering expansive view to the north and south bay. In the kitchen area, we increased the perceived ceiling height by removing the existing ceiling finishes and cladding the joists, gaining an extra ten inches of space and volume in between. Oak planking was used for the floors, walls and ceiling throughout to support the camp-like feeling.
