Adirondack home building in New Hampshires' Lakes & Mountains.


Adirondack home progress.

If you think this place looks big from the front, where two stories are above the ground level? Wait until you get a look at the back, where the lower level walkout is exposed.


The Stone work goes at a slower pace than much of the other

parts. The footings, masonry block, then exterior real stone all has to follow the proper sequence to complete the visual effects for the columns and the four story chimney. The covered porch also has an outdoor fireplace…as a perfect spot for a cigar and a cognac.


In Adirondack design the use of a variety of materials adds depth and character to the home. The exterior siding consists of cedar shingles, board and batten, exposed beams and roof support trusses. The Roof itself is mainly architectural shingle, but the flatter areas are standing seam metal materials not only for added flair but to shed the heavy snows of a New Hampshire winter.


Landscaping will come last; a minimalist approach will be employed to keep the Adirondack design from appearing to suburban. The South Peak Subdivision where these homes are located require local plants and shrubs, the least amount of paving as is practical and a “lawn” if any not to exceed 1,000 square feet in total size. These homes are meant to blend in to the land and stay as natural as the mountains that surround them.
