Home Grown: A Wooden Home in Vermont

More than anything else, the use of local materials—many lifted directly from the site—lend this exquisitely designed Vermont home a solid, organic beauty.

In this nook of the master bedroom, a few of the home’s thirty-nine vertical wood supports are visible. Thirteen are from the site; the remaining trees are from elsewhere in Vermont. Most of the floors are quarter-sawn local beech, with some maple trim. The Stickley rocker is positioned to take advantage of natural light.
