a cabin in the woods

this is my new house!

model-house-hudson-woods

just kidding. this is the model home at hudson woods, a new architect-designed development west of the hudson river and about three hours north of new york city. the architect is drew lang, and he gave us a tour last weekend. the place is gorgeous.

the details are incredible and the add-ons are the stuff of dreams, as if the house itself isn't enough. fruit tree grove, anyone? pool? or a 2-bed/2-bath guesthouse? i'd definitely go for the greenhouse and vegetable garden.

anyway, here are the photos! peruse them while i go convince hhh that we need one of these.
