Abstract
I set out to create a house to nestle within the rugged landscape of West Virginia; a dwelling that would suit those living in rural villages and up remote hollows. This place is created by a retaining wall to hold back the slope and a generous roof to shelter from the weather. The structure is divided into two seemingly equal halves, one half being enclosed to form the house, the other remaining for outdoor space. Terrain and orientation were considered, giving rise to three variations of the house. Within each house, memories of my childhood surroundings are recognized and celebrated.
