Reinventing the House

At Bensonwood, a design/build company in New Hampshire, it’s all about open building. This approach to home construction allows for custom designs while also keeping in mind the benefits of organizing and coordinating a house’s mechanical components with layers of accessibility. Author Andrew Dey, a company steward at Bensonwood, discusses the firm’s commitment to open building and the way the thought process allows them to use a catalog of designs to create a variety of different homes. In a sidebar, timber-framer Tedd Benson talks about the history of open building and his inspiration to bring this European experiment to the United States.
