2019 Excellence in Small Home Design Winner: Country Comfort
Jay Tucker of Old Hampshire Designs, Inc. in New London
This quintessential lakeside cabin replaces a one-room structure built in 1901. Its cozy design features a welcoming open floor plan and loft, and a spacious covered porch overlooking the lake. Fourteen thousand board feet of lumber were harvested from the property, and include white pine for the exterior siding and trim, interior walls and ceilings, as well as oak for flooring, interior decorative trim, baseboards, porch posts and stair railings.
Judges said: This intimate lakeside cabin expresses the essence of New Hampshire’s Lake Region. Although the exterior simple gable form is quite quaint, the interior spaces express an open feel. The harvested timber from the site transformed into multiple building materials is commendable.
