However upon meeting the home owners (two PhDs in mathematics who teach at prestigious New England colleges) and seeing their barn home, I quickly changed my mind. I discovered their post and beam held great interest for me and it had nothing to do with the technology.
For those of you less familiar with the lingo; a center great room is located in the middle of the structure instead of the usual placement on a gabled end of the building. The owners did this to accommodate the building site as well as take advantage of lake and mountain views.
Hmm…do you think maybe those mathematics degrees came into play during the planning of this home? At the very least, this showstopper of a house was the product of some very thoughtful and creative minds!
