Ray Freeman and Doug Drape designed this small house on a remote site as a base of operations for the design and development of a larger house on the same site. The owners wanted to move their family to the new location, but weren't ready to proceed with the larger project. This house will eventually become the guest house, attached to the main house by a bridge, once the larger house is built.  
 
The house was designed to be constructed by the owner, who had little construction experience and no help. Spans and lumber sizes were kept to a minimum to facilitate this single-handed operation. The massing, with the central volume with side bays is the result of this short-stick approach. The interior features living, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms above, with a garage below to be used as a shop during construction of the main residence.
