33. Modern Meets Rustic

Preliminary drawings for a new home to be built just outside of Sun Valley, ID, have been completed by MossCreek. The client's request was to create a home that looked very rugged and aged on the front, and then blend modern elements into the right side and rear elevations, overlooking the river. On the interior, a large circular stairway ascends up a silo stairway, along with many other unique features. Click the image to see the early and final sketches of this new home by MossCreek.

32. Site Review for New Moss Creek Project

Placing a new home on the land is very important, and MossCreek just held a site review meeting for one of our current projects to make sure everything was perfect. The clients and their builder met with MossCreek at the job site to determine the best placement of the home. A view stand was constructed so that everyone could see the view from the actual height of the home, and the outline of the residence was marked with stakes and flags to help everyone visualize the finished structure.

27. Curb Appeal MossCreek Style

We are frequently asked to “MossCreek-ify” existing structures to give them the “MossCreek Look”, and recently we did just that for a group of Golf Villas. The Villas were already built in a traditional suburban style but not selling well. The owner commissioned MossCreek to give them a much more eye-catching exterior. The challenge for MossCreek was to give them an exterior of rustic elegance without having to make major structural changes to the existing buildings. Please click image to see before and after photos, as well as several interior photos. You can also visit the website of the villas at www.sanctuarygolfvillas.com. We hope you will agree that the “MossCreek Look” looks great!
