Moses Private Residence


New Construction


Barboursville, WV


6,000 gsf


Merit Award for Sustainability - AIA West Virginia

Situated on a 40-acre wooded site, this new 6,000 square foot house was designed and built as a “dream green home” for the environmentally-conscious clients. The house is designed in a contemporary Arts and Crafts style reflecting the client’s appreciation for natural materials, handcrafted workmanship and simple yet elegant detailing. Silling Architects used the best sustainable practices and technologies available to support the client’s goal of being completely off-the-grid within five years.


The house follows the natural topography of the sites’ north/south ridge-line and is nestled into the slope providing a low profile, one-story east side for shady afternoons on the screened porch, while the west side is two-storied for tree-house views from the main interior space across the gulley.

In our experience, Silling Architects is one of the few businesses who seem to inherently manage life’s priorities at all times. While every business is in the business of making money, Silling successfully balances their client’s interest and the art of their craft with great integrity.
