VERMONT BOXunder construction
WHAT: 3-Bedroom, ground-up weekend house, built by Jim Yohe, partner at LOCALbrooklyn.
CHALLENGE: To get the absolutely most “bang for the buck,” to have to use as few
sub contractors as possible and to create a layout with no waste.
STRATEGY: Minimize envelope, circulation areas, and building materials. Downstairs,
the entry vestibule acts as storage for skis and outdoor gear and keeps the cold and
clutter out of the single large kitchen/eating/dining room. Upstairs, three bedrooms
and one bath are just the right size for a weekend house.
