This private retreat sits on 40 acres of land near Harrisonville, Missouri. Extensive thought was put into the exact siting and orientation of the structures, which include a four bedroom house and a carport with enclosed storage. The forms and materials incorporated into the design draw from the surrounding agricultural building stock, while the formal manipulations and detailing bring a decidedly modern feel to the property.
“My husband and I hired Bill Poole/Poolehaus to design and oversee the building of a contemporary farmhouse near Drexel, Missouri. We had 40 acres to work with and Bill was instrumental in deciding on just the right spot to make use of the views of the distant hills. Bill also did an excellent job in helping us build a low maintenance retreat – we wanted to be able to head out to the farm and not have a list of maintenance tasks. We ended up with the perfect retreat for family and friends. We would highly recommend Bill for your next architectural project. He has a keen sense of design, is detail oriented and best of all – fun to work with.”
