Plan Description

Drive along the back-roads of tobacco country and you will see among the untended fields and falling tobacco barns, centuries of well-used Tidewater houses, some occupied and some standing against time with just a fading memory to hold plank to stud. The style has survived revolution, roads and railroads, war, depression, technology, recession, and the death of a way-of-living because it perfectly accommodates costal conditions from northern Georgia to southern Maryland. The Tidewater house is adaptable. You will notice by the lay of board or plank that many of these farmhouses began as simple one-room structures with stone-end chimneys; and you may guess that the shed-roof was attached when the farmer took a wife; and that the front shed-roofed porch was added with the growing family; and you might well be correct. Too, in traveling west you might notice that these plank houses on stone foundations become well kempt log cabins, square hewn or round. Sometimes, you will see a new Tidewater, family car and tended garden with a patch of tobacco, proud inheritor of an American tradition.

In the summer, wrap-around windows let in cool breezes from the pond through the partially screened front porch; in the winter, the home is cozy and tight, warmed by the large, fieldstone fireplace. The spacious kitchen is open to the dining table and family room. There is a hideaway television cabinet; an ample pantry/storage room; two bedrooms; two baths and an outdoor shower. This home has rustic stone walls, a dog-run, and a dock for sunning, fishing, parties, and romantic boating excursions.

“The story of the American Dream is the history of the American Home, and each home tells a story. Our beautiful American homes expand the American Dream by adapting regional building traditions to modern living. Each of our homes considers its place, its purpose, and the family who lives within it, and each house acknowledges the universal desire for comfort, ease, affordability, and beauty.”

Michael received his training in classical painting, sculpture, and architecture, and has worked for over thirty years in each of these professions. He brings to his designs an understanding of the best that has been done in Western Civilization's 3,000 year tradition.

He designed the New American Home 2011, debuting at the National Association of Home Builders Show in Orlando. His most significant sculptural commissions include The History of Texas at Texas Rangers Ball Park, Arlington, Texas, the largest US frieze of the 20th Century; numerous portrait busts for the Library of Congress, The Supreme Court Building, and other public buildings. His recent statues include General Eisenhower and The Shipbuilder, both in Alexandria, Virginia. His specialty is relief portraits and fine medals. And his painting, sculpture, and architectural drawings are represented in over 250 private and public collections.
