The Woods Home

Architect Dick Knecht’s work tributes the innocent childhood memory of days spent in a tree fort into a present day home. Like the outdoor forts of yesteryear, this home is illuminated by natural light and two separate level decks to catch a fresh breath of the Black Hills air. Knecht’s design on reminiscent home creates a spacious appeal harmonized with an essence of comfort.

Every home highlights the owner’s lifestyle. Custom Homes by J Scull will take your alternative home construction plans and turn them into your dream home.

The Black Hills offer a wonderful opportunity for a stimulating approach to home building while collaborating with the earthy surroundings of the hills. This home is a grown-up version of the fort you built in the woods as a kid. Three stories jut out of the ground and pull up even with the tree and rock outcroppings. Windows open up the home to the wilderness and you are left to realize you truly coexist with the natural surroundings. An open floor plan provides room to breathe all while capturing the natural splendor. Two decks and a screened in porch are built for entertaining, or for taking a good long nap.
