Schilke Residence

Scottsbluff, NE

This project is a prime example of a successful long distance relationship between the architect, the client and the builder. The client contacted Mark Queripel through our affiliation with “The Not So Big House.” They were moving from Maryland to Nebraska and wanted to begin design of their home prior to moving. Mark helped them design their home and coordinated the selection of a builder and conducted construction administration for their new home in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. This unique home was an exercise in maximizing the usability of the small footprint allotted for the home. Oversized window wells and glass flooring were used to bring daylight into the lower level to insure that that crucial square footage remained warm and inviting. Half of the livable area of the home is located on the lower level, including all of the bedrooms. The main level was exhaustively designed around the living patterns and lifestyle of the owners.
