This is another entry in a series of posts titled “open house” in which we offer photographic tours of selected projects.
Nestled in a wooded lot on the shoreline of North Carolina’s Lake Norman lies a grand shingled house we completed almost 15 years ago. A sleepy beast of a house, it almost seems to rise up from a lazy nap to spy who might be trotting up the pier, ready to offer a drink or some shade. The shaggy, sun bleached shingles are freshened by the linen white windows and trim – an classic American combination.
The wooden tinderbox interiors (sheetrock was not invited to weekend here) were casually outfitted by McAlpine Booth and Ferrier. A humble alchemy of burlap,fruitwood, leather, worn tapestry and stone, the house lures the weary week-worn laborer with promise of leisurely restoration.
