Jacobson Carriage House by Robert Gurney Architect
by Ted Savage / August 26, 2011
Via @ArchDaily, a guest house and garage as a piloted DIY starting point for a future home in Mineral, Virginia. A continued exchange between architect and client developed ideas "that would satisfy both parties' desires for composition, functionality, and longevity ... and set a precedent of economy thru selection of material and simple methods of construction."

Working with concrete block and rusted corrugated metal siding, plywood, off-the-shelf millwork, cement board panels and porcelain tile, the client was able to "construct the building himself and become familiar with each material and the most sensible way to use it providing for minimal future maintenance."
