House on the Hill

Architect & Construction Management

A challenging site worth the effort for the magnificent view of the Little Miami River.

A modern vocabulary 2-bedroom, 2900 square foot house with a studio nestled among the trees and tucked into the hillside. The site required the foundation to be set on original soil yet the floor plan of the house cantilevers eight feet out in two directions, to the west and north. Because of limited site access the construction process required starting at the north end of the site and working towards the south in phases.
