Contemporary Home, Rivermont, Virginia

The Martin project was a little different from most of the design/build jobs that we are involved with. The Martins had several plans that they liked from architectural plan magazines. Our initial task was to provide ball-park estimates of what we projected the cost to be for each plan that the client presented. Additionally, we placed each house plan over a site plan and reworked the contours to see which plan worked best with the site.

Eventually, we were able to assist the client in the selection of an architectural plan that fit the site and was within budget. Our design efforts didn’t stop there though, we were also requested to modify the existing plans to where rooms were reworked and some new rooms were added.

We also modified the exterior to where the home blended more with its neighbors. The revisions to the exterior included material changes, wood headers, stone placement and also introduced subtle details to improve the cottage character of the house.

While we did not design this home, the CSI signature is present throughout and we are proud to have been a part of this project at the Preserve at Oakwood.
