New Construction - Custom Residence - Montauk, NY

This custom home offered a unique design challenge as the owners wished to take advantage of the second floor ocean view and keep construction costs as low as possible due to the very expensive construction costs of the area.

The solution involved placing the main living space (kitchen, living and dining rooms) on the upper levels while proving large windows and glazed doors to take advantage of the views.  Most of the bedrooms were subsequently located on the first floor.

Construction costs were managed by use of modular construction system, where the house was consructed in a factory located in PA, then shipped to the site in (12) separate sections.  This greatly reduced onsite labor costs.
