Walker Design Studio, Private Residence

Derrick Walker of Walker Design Studio recently renovated this rustic dream home just minutes from Birmingham, Alabama.  As you can see the home fits in context with its surroundings.  I like the third photo especially as the roof lines obeys the line of the mountain range behind. I don't believe this is an accident and do believe calculated on part of the architect.  I also noticed that on both sides of the home a reflection can be seen in the lake.  The interiors of the home absolutely complement the exteriors.  Interiors walls and floors are all very nice wood, rock walls, rough sawn cedar cased openings, and very large beams on the ceiling~ honesty of materiel at its best.  One of the coolest designs of the living area are the motorized retractable windows that can raise to bring that nice autumn air in or the "outside" in if you want.  The lake that surrounds the home is designed to practice water skiing and actually saw a professional water skier as you will see in the photo below.  All in all one of the nicest homes I've had the pleasure to photograph.  Enjoy the photos!  Click here to find out more about Derrick and the wonderful work he does.  Very talented!
