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.
