Callagy Home
Glen Ellen, California

The Design Challenge

Create a house for the family of a recently deceased General Contractor who had always wanted to build a family home.  Almost all of the labor was donated by former friends and associates in the building trades.

The Design Response

The design represents many of Bob Callagy’s favorite building materials and elements (wood shakes, small paned windows, wood floors, etc.) with a floor plan that provided a relationship of spaces that he particularly liked.  His family lived here for many years.
