Vermont Modernism

My girlfriend and I have been spending some time assessing our housing situation as of late, with the market down, it seems like this may be one of the only possible opportunities to buy a house in the ridiculously overpriced mountain town where we live. Consequently, I’ve been spending a lot more time looking at houses and architecture, so this Vermont house by architect Kyu Sung Woo, just a few miles from where I grew up, really caught my eye.

I’ve definitely become accustomed to amazing California weather, but if I could live in a place like this, out in a field by itself, the east coast suddenly becomes a lot more appealing again. Growing up around the Cape Cods and farmhouses that are absolutely everywhere back there, I’ve always found the modernist style really refreshing, and it’s nice to see it done well in a rural Vermont setting. Even better, the house is built using green practices and is off the grid, using water from an on-site well and generates its own solar power. Read the back story in The Wall Street Journal.
