Frenemies House

This 1600SF home is built upon the existing foundation of a house that burnt down several years ago. CDF designed the house, and then executed most of the building work after the exterior wood frame was erected by a professional framing crew.

The double 2x4 wall assembly required that we build a second frame on the interior, with a resulting insulation value of R-45. The form of the house is composed of two adjacent volumes. From the street side, the volumes appear to be good friends. Cuddled up next to each other while embracing or perhaps holding hands. However, if you move around to the other side, you see a different story, where the white whale appears to be devouring the helpless pink squid.
