The new structure was harmonized with its ravine site located in the City of St. Joseph by utilizing the private views of the ravine surrounding at the east and south sides of the home and blending the craftsman style with the existing established city neighborhood. To further harmonize the new home with the surrounding woods, all mature trees were left on the site untouched. The simple structure design, set on the side of the sloping ravine side allowed for a 2680 square foot walk out lower level that featured an open plan. The homes roof was constructed with energy saving structural insulated panels and four foot fiberglass overhangs. The home offers 2640 square feet of living space occupying 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a master bedroom with a loft, a two car two-story garage featuring a lower-level workshop and over 1200 square feet of surrounding decks.
