|River House, Eau Claire, WI
The River House is a new home situated on a bluff overlooking the Chippewa River near Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Initial design schemes began as a modest guesthouse but evolved into a home for a young family. The design kept to a comfortable, human scale, and emphasized high quality materials and details that fit the home's riverhouse theme. Clad in cedar shingles, rustic cedar siding, and limestone veneer, the exterior fits into its wooded river setting. The interior features reclaimed flooring and structural timbers, hand painted tiles, custom bronze and iron railings, and a dramatic Rumford fireplace.
