Little Squam Lake Custom Home

This building lot was 99 feet wide, and solid ledge and had fairly steep slope on it. It boasts a closed loop geothermal heating/cooling system that we could do with 3 bore holes. The siding is elite western red cedar shakes with red cedar live-edge horizontal siding on some of the A dormers. Flooring for the second floor is 5″ and 7″ red oak mixed together. The first floor has 9″ white oak planks brought in from the west coast. The interior posts and beams are from native pine and came from a local logger cut specific for this house and we acclimated them on site for 2 months before cutting the mortise and tenon joinery and installing them. This has a full stone masonry fireplace, custom built cherry kitchen and site built book shelves with soffit lighting. The garage has heated auto bays, and a finished bonus room over it with a wet bar, full bath, a sleeping area with custom built bunk beds and is finished to match the main house. With all the ledge and the lack of pervious soil we put a few catch basins in the yard and piped the runoff to daylight.
