Located in the Long Branch Residential Preserve in the mountains of Northeast Georgia, this home is part of a permanent conservation effort to preserve the land and earth as a whole. The home sits on the edge of a slope overlooking a lake and is based on a traditional plan, with a master bedroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms on the second floor. The home also includes a sleeping porch, mudroom, and detached carport/picnic shelter. Many sustainable elements were also incorporated, including flooring that is from FSC-certified forests and the use of natural wind patterns to cool the home.
