Post + Beam Country Home,
Cedar Grove, Wisconsin
Wanting to live in the country and actually finding the right home on the right land are two different things. When our clients set their hearts on a country home, their search brought about disappointing results. Either it was the right setting and the house left a bit to be desired, or it was a nice home and the location was anything but.
When they finally stumbled across the perfect piece of land, they just couldn’t pass it up. However, the home on the property was not something they could picture themselves living in. Our clients hired our firm to help them create a home fitting for this serene spot, and their personal taste. Fans of post + beam construction, they relayed their wish list to our team.
Thankfully, high ceilings were already part of the existing home’s design. Adding on to both the south and west sides of the structure, Abacus was able to retrofit the great room, master bedroom and exterior with non-structural Southern pine post + beam elements that look like they’ve been there from day one. The use of natural stone and quarter-sawn oak floors–laid throughout the home–adds an inviting and rustic charm to this now impressive country home.
