STARKSBORO, VERMONT. 1977. The McLane House was built at the edge of a semi-abandoned agricultural landscape in Starksboro, Vermont. The dining, kitchen, living areas are contained in one space that swells—like an enlarged bay window—out of the main body of the house. The curved roof houses a bedroom with a stair leading to the second floor. Here the master bedroom looks out over the living room below. A narrow twisting stair continues up to a room on the third-floor loft where one inhabits what may seem to be the bridge of the ship, or ‘cab’ of a locomotive. Looking down the slope of the roof past the dual stacks, one may have a sense of steering the house out into the landscape beyond.
