The gable roof is a classic that has been eternally linked with the image of a dream family home. It is one of the first things that kids sketch in their art classes and even in a modern setting a gable roof instantly grabs your attention.
On the lower level it is the double-height living area that steals the show with kitchen and dining on one side and an elegant sitting area on the other. Litecrete precast concrete panels and wooden ceiling and partitions offer ample textural contrast in a modern home that is both cheerful and polished.
Minimal and elegant the house still remains warm and inviting with large sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows bringing the surrounding scenery and Lake Michigan indoors.
We are often so embroiled in aesthetics ergonomics and even a dash of luxury that we tend to forget the cost at which all of that comes. For most homeowners across the globe their ‘dream home’ plans start by figuring out the costs involved.
