"Little House"(Carolina Park)completed 2018

This new construction in Carolina Park deceives the eye.  This “little house in the court," as neighbors refer to it, is actually almost 3700 square feet, with 4 bedrooms (one of which serves as a library) and 4 full bathrooms.  In addition, there is a 500sf apartment over the garage.  The cross-gable roof, a vision of the client, provides a lot of living space without a full second story.  The open floor plan is arranged to eliminate wasted square footage and hallways.


This project is the result of an amazing team.  In addition to our creative clients, the following people brought this design to life:



Jack Burton,

The Burton Company

Laura Baxter Boyle,

Landscape Architect

John A. Tarkany,

“Our 6th and last new home began with a blank sheet of paper, and an inchoate vision of our empty nest residence. Laura was the first member of our four person design team. Fortunately, we did have the benefit of ample time during our planning process...hours of fun dialogue created a rich and creative stew of ideas. Laura collated this all into a perfect home."


"Laura’s meticulous documents contributed to a stress free building experience.”
