Abstract
Three houses are sited in the New River Valley of

Southwestern Virginia in 1996. Each house is designed to

provide the essential utilitarian resources necessary for

habitation in modern Appalachia. The relative context within

which to make each house has been found within the unique

character of the individual sites. Each house exists within the

current moment and place, so they therefore associate with a

modern version of the Appalachian material palette: milled

lumber, concrete and concrete block, raw and galvanized

structural steel and roofing. The re-seeing of material is

enabled through an understanding of the physical and

metaphorical characteristics of chosen materials: chemical and

physical properties, appearance, composition, regional

presence, interaction with climate, structural capacity,

manufacturing process, adaptability of form to standard

construction and detail, etc.
