Best Retirement Home of the Year: Duncan McPherson of Samsel Architects

Our award goes to Duncan for the beautiful farmhouse he designed in Mars Hill, N.C. The accessible floor plan, brought to life with a palette of simple, attractive, and durable materials, makes this home an exceptional example of sensible design in residential architecture.

Oftenclueless Oftenclueless writes: Is there a way one can get illustrations of the elevations of the house; and, a floor plan? Might want to do a reduced size variation of the plan if possible.

Looking at a very shallow depth lot, that happens to be on a very wide (long), lot in Colorado. It too is on a small, but active river.

I am a retired Geezer, as well.

Thank you.
