The Cushing is our nod to the classic New England Farmhouse. With a generous open-concept first floor layout, a ground floor master suite, banks of sun-soaking windows, and room upstairs for 2 bedrooms, laundry, 1-2 baths, and a bonus room (which also could become another bedroom), this design packs a lot into its compact, classic form.
The Cushing shown above perches on a hillside with optimal southerly exposure - allowing the home to be passively heated well into the colder months of the year. The living space provides a light-filled, tree-bounded respite for the home's family, and the 2-floor distribution of sleeping spaces allows for all to have a solid sense of personal space.
In his own words, the home's co-owner (and carpentry detailer and systems explainer extraordinaire) remarks on his experience of living in this variation of BrightBuilt's Cushing design:
"We are loving the last couple of weeks. Sunny days are keeping the house at 65-70, and the temp only dropped 4 degrees last night when it was 24 degrees out side. Wondering how long we can hold off on using the heat."
