A Love Affair on Lake Champlain

by TruexCullins, May 17, 2011

The Crowe Residence in Shelburne was a labor of love for all who were involved.
This light-filled multi-generational home settles comfortably into the landscape, embracing the view  across Lake Champlain.  The project was the winner of the 2009 AIA Vermont Award for Excellence in Architecture.  And now, its story is being shared with readers beyond the borders of Vermont.

We are pleased to note that the Crowe Residence is the feature project in the May/June issue of New England Home magazine, with a beautiful photo gracing the cover and a 10-page spread inside.  You can read the full article online at nehomemag.com/article/instant-karma.  Or, better yet, go out and pick up a copy of the print version of New England Home, available at all major bookstores, convenience stores, grocery stores, drug stores, and corner newsstands near you.

Congratulations go out to the entire project team:  Architecture by Rolf Kielman and Lee Grutchfield; Interior Design by Kim Deetjen and Rebekah Bose; Landscape Design by Keith Wagner Landscape Architect; Contruction by Dan Morris and Ric Santa Maria from Roundtree Constuction;  and photography by Jim Westphalen.
