Plan Description

"We need to get away". Everyone wants a place where the day to day fades back. The Halcyon was designed with just this need in mind. The get-away experience starts as you cross the bridge and pass through the large front facade; it's like a gateway to nature just through the front door. As you walk into the living room, the fourteen foot tall windows reveal the full expanse of the views you came for. The large outdoor decks offer ample room for relaxing and outdoor living. With both front and rear decks, you can have you pick of the perfect sun and shade in the morning and the evening! By organizing the spaces vertically, this cabin can be located on tight sites or sites with steep terrain that would otherwise require expensive and expansive sitework. The upstairs loft contains the bedroom space as well as a large storage area and closet. With a full kitchen and laundry facilities, nothing is left out that you need for long weeks away.

Meet the Designer - Daniel E. Bush

Daniel E. Bush -
“It's just not practical to invest in a new house that can't adapt to your family's changing needs.”

Dan's more than 20 years of experience as an architectural designer began with student work at Georgia Tech. He is inspired by some of the major design figures of the 1940s and 50s - such as architects Richard Neutra and J. R. Davidson, and developer Joseph Eichler - who knew how to develop plans that were efficient and spacious. "These same principles are even more important in today's homes," he says. "My plans expand interior space by extending multiple views to the outside and by taking advantage of diagonal vistas. They target multi-generational families, the growing need for multiple home offices, and include traditional and modern designs for primary and secondary homes."
