County Line House


County Line House —

Slinger, Wisconsin — 2,000 sf

The existing house, originally constructed in 1978, sits on a spectacular five acre wooded parcel in the most topographic portion of Wisconsin’s famed Kettle Moraine. Over the years, the house had slowly fallen into disarray: no enclosed bedrooms remained, the main floor had been oddly configured, and the entire home was never fitted with a central HVAC system. What was left of the interior when the project began was removed in preparation for entirely new spaces within the home’s existing footprint.

Several major changes were designed for the project to complete its transformation. The house’s original front door was hidden upon arrival. To create a welcoming entry, we completely reworked the home’s main level plan, including the design of a new entry foyer and 4-foot wide custom pivot door. Inside the home, we configured three new bedrooms, two new baths, and relocated and doubled the size of the former kitchen. Every finished surface both inside and outside of the home is now brand new and reflects the owners’ desire for a comfortable and transitional contemporary environment.
