Salem, South Carolina

The 5,000 SF residence was constructed utilizing timber framing. The heavy timbers were repurposed from an abandoned tobacco warehouse. The tobacco warehouse was located near the project site on the shore of Keowee Lake, South Carolina. Each timber was carefully selected and structurally graded during the design process. Salvaged timbers were then fabricated into new ridge beams, roof purlins, and roof trusses. The roof trusses, spanning the great room, were constructed with hidden iron plates and pins. 

The design parti breaks the house into three "pavilions" that line the water's edge and opens the interior spaces to the lake views while providing natural daylight to all interior spaces.
