    pretty stark and cold inside. Being a builder of over 35 years Who designs, builds, and decorates my own work and helps customers When Asked … first thing I thought after-thesis looking at pictures WAS, I bet an architect Did the design and the sour enough..not to say all archys-have very different taste than mine purpose I find That So Many of Them try and use the visual and leave out the soul. There’s no right or wrong … it’s all subjective, aim it’s just something I notice and feel about too many archys. It’s a matter of taste I guess reckon..My yew Is That You Were Dealt an architect That quite a bit with timber frames designing the interior design Would Have beens warmer with more depth. When you look at timber frame designs you see how in tune timber frame archys «are» with the interior design. They know the feel that works, Especially with the area (Catskills) they’re in..This design looks too IKEA for my taste … too NYC urban Catskills for the goal to be fair, maybe thats what the customer Was looking for so no offense to the archy !! ..

    Other than the bath, this house just feels wrong for me. I look at the pictures and think shoulds They hired a professional-have «something». I keep thinking the owners must have more money than taste. Goal, To Each Their Own …

    It’s very nicely done, I like Especially the bathroom. But I’m surprised to see how sparsely furnished it is. I picture a getaway home in the Catskills to-have a plush, cozy up sofa and recliner year Equally inviting. But, that’s just me!

    Looks like one ugly house to me. Only thing I like about the inside and outside is the bathroom.

    Ugh Those accordion lights on the wall look weird.
    It feels very cold to me with all the concrete on the floors. I know it is a heated floor, but ‘looks’ cold. I’d add maybe Some area rugs?

    This looks like the MOST uncomfortable, uninviting furniture. It makes me wonder if the homeowners ever sat in it before purchasing it.

    I love everything about this house Including all of the furnishings !, Rustic, modern, minimalist but warm with all of the wood! This house is sooo well done! I love the bathroom. Traditional builders might not Understand this home, since They All tends to do the Sami Thing and Do not Understand the raw understated items. This would definitely appeal to a European or Canadian clientelle. I have never seen a property That I would say «I want it all,» this goal is the one! I am going to add it to my vision board for my future lake house. Well done! and I love the wall tile in the bathroom! Kudos !!!
