Gefell Cottage - T.I. Park


Design: Steve Taylor
Architect of Record & Engineer:
      Jonathan Taylor of Taylored Architecture
Builder: Rick Gefell
Owner: Rick & Michelle Gefell
Location: Thousand Island Park


Rick Gefell and his siblings were summer neighbors of ours as the grew up.  Rick worked summers with us during his college years.  He and Michele purchased an old garage and lived there summers until they were able to build a new house on the property.  They came to me to help with the design, which I was thrilled to be a part of.  

After completing the schematic design and gaining the blessing of TI Park’s Architectural Review Board, I turned the project over to our son, Jonathan, who was embarking on his own architectural practice.  Rick was the General Contractor and the project came to a very satisfying and happy completion.
