The design inspiration is a late 18th-early 19th century three-part house that was altered at different times during its history. The main house was designed to be sited in a mature setting of grass meadows with large live oaks bordering the woods. The house needed to appear as if it had been there all along. The implied architectural evolution becomes evident as one studies the design and details. Subtle changes in door styles and molding design are evident as one moves through the house. These changes, whether authentic or created, help to keep traditional design from being staid; even authentic period houses are changed over time. The result is a fresh approach to traditional design, not just a recreated old house.
