2018 Excellence in Small Home Design Winner: Winnipesaukee Bunk House
Wood & Clay, Inc. in Gilford
To comfortably accommodate ten people, this nine-hundred-square-foot guest cottage includes a full kitchen, a great room with gas fireplace, a master bedroom, a bunkroom, a screened porch and a three-quarter bath. Highlights include reclaimed white oak for the kitchen cabinets and paneling above the fireplace; reclaimed barn board on the ceiling; and reclaimed antique heart pine for the bunkbeds. Curved fir trusses were built on site. The surround of the gas fireplace is made from aged New Hampshire granite.
Judges said: This design does a nice job of working within the constraints of the site and footprint. We like the palette of materials and colors, and the exterior and interior hold together nicely. The exterior is simple and well done, and tasteful furnishings complete the interior.
