Peponi Pine Lodge

Peponi Pine Lodge is a 4,000 square foot, 1 story residence with 6 car garage, located out in the piney woods of east Texas. The key to the design was maximizing the natural lighting into the heart of the interior, as well as frame the beautiful views of the surrounding forest. This house is a testament to what can be done with cement-fiber lapped siding. If you really take the time and come up with great details, this material can be as nice as natural stone or stained wood. The almost all white color scheme gives this home a cathedral-like quality, which stands out against the browns and greens of the trees. I know the homeowners are as happy as I am with the finished product.
