This project was very unique because rather than serving as a main residence, it was designed to accommodate all four owners, their family and friends, as well as transient inhabitants.
A three story silo measuring 20 feet in diameter was connected to the house on two levels by a framed deck and stone pavers. The silo space provides a ground level studio with an efficiency apartment and loft on the upper two floors. The silo portion also serves as an Airbnb when the owners are away.
The most difficult aspect of this project was converting the grain silo into a living space and creating a walkway between the silo and the main home. A skywalk was constructed to connect the main structure to the silo.

"Our whole team pulled together to create a beautiful outcome on the Cabin Point project," said Ted Marrs, President of Abrahamse & Company Builders. "The metal silo feature presented some unique challenges but the Windsor products were an excellent solution. Their streamlined appearance and simple two-over-two grille pattern complemented the modern farmhouse design. And the low-maintenance clad exteriors is perfect for a second home. Nobody wants to worry about maintenance when they're on vacation!"
