[smith lake residence iI] culman county, alabama

Completion date: 2013

The rustic-detailed four bedroom home follows the slope of the terrain as it steps down toward the lake, opening to a large level play area for the family’s four young children.  On the lower level of the house, adjacent to a play area, is an outdoor kitchen with a covered sitting area.  The living areas’ open-style plan features vaulted ceilings framed with heavy timber trusses and floors constructed of reclaimed timbers from an old Alabama mill.  The siting of the house was coordinated with an adjacent lake home designed by BAS two years prior.  Together, the two homes, facing southwesterly down an open expanse of the lake form a harmonious composition that is uniquely eye catching especially viewed from the water.
