A waterfront custom home just completed in Queen Anne's County for some past clients. The first custom home I designed when I went into business in 1998 - a two-story farmhouse style on Braddock Mountain - was for this couple, who are now starting to think about retirement and living in a single story cottage.

A custom home in the woods overlooking the Cacapon River, designed for an outdoorsy couple and their dog, carefully located to take advantage of the natural grade for the basement level garage. In addition, it was oriented on the site for maximum enjoyment of the river views from the living area, the master bed, and even the master bathroom's tub.
One of my long-time contractor clients bought a piece of canalfront property in Chincoteague and asked me to design a weekend beach house for his family. Although the home is modest, the open floor plan creates a big house feel. We positioned the patio doors and windows to take advantage of the prevailing breezes, and the air conditioning is only needed on the hottest days of mid-summer. The home is constructed on piers due to its proximity to water. A sleeping loft over the right half of the home is furnished dormitory-style, to accommodate visiting relatives. We have stayed in this home for the weekend and wish it were our own!
