Sorry, it’s been so long, but things have really been crazy.
With that said, I want to re-introduce the site. Tweaking and re-vamping it a bit.
Less Words ~ More Photos. Keeping things short and sweet while cutting to the point. Heck, I’m busy, your busy, you don’t want to hear me blab on and on, we just want to look at cool homes, Right?
So what is Well Composed.
It has nothing to do with size or magnitude. Price or zip code. Nothing to do with complexity. It’s where the elements flow together seamlessly. Where a personal tapestry is created. From the outside ~ appearing comfortable and effortless. In fact, it is in this simplicity that ultimately Elegance is achieved. The common thread running through anything Well Composed is Design. Intentional, thoughtful Design.
I just finished up this home on Lake Lanier and it was a blast to build.
Our client spent 8 years looking for his perfect lot. Nearly 3 years designing the home. And, in the end, he is absolutely overjoyed.
After years of planning, shaping, configuring, integrating ~ all of his wildest dreams have come to fruition.
And his biggest goal, to have as near to Net Zero living as possible, was accomplished. Through the aid of Solar power, Solar hot water heating and one incredible automation system, we came pretty darn close.
Earning a HERS rating of “9”
A Blower Door test score of 1.7
And a Duct Blaster test score of 2.7 (All of which are personal bests for me).
I’d say we pulled it off.
Special Thx to:
and of course ~
For being the technical gurus to guide us through this daunting task.
For me though, my greatest satisfaction came from watching his excitement build and ultimately turn into joy as everything that he had hoped for came into being. He’s given the home the name “Ventanas al Cielo” which means ~ Windows to Heaven which basically says it all. Love That. You can read more about it Here on his personal site.
Next post, we’ll venture back down into Buckhead and uncover some beautiful hidden treasures.
Keep an eye out.
All my Bests,
Kyle’s newest building site on Lake Lanier. He enjoyed building this house.
