Northern Wisconsin Home Built for Comfort

Posted December 28, 2022

Hixwood designer Aaron Weaver got all the details right when he designed this combination home and hobby shop. The vaulted ceiling and open-concept interior make for light and airy living quarters with plenty of space for family and entertaining.

Located in Northern Wisconsin, it was important to make this home and hobby shop energy efficient. During the frigid winter months, the R21 insulation in the walls and R50 insulation above the ceiling will keep the cold where it belongs — outside.
