The Blacksmith’s Farm

Back to Portfolio

The owners use the home as a retreat from urban living and to host large family functions. They enjoy the reclusive / private aspect of forested surroundings and aural textures of nearby seasonal creek. The property was originally a homestead and farm that included a concrete bunker for blacksmith and forging. The remnants of iron carriage components, as well as implements for farming were found in various old outbuildings. The simple form of the original wooden clad outbuildings provided inspiration for the house design.
