Robert M. Cain has created a new line of houses distilling the direct, practical and elegant structures found in a heritage of southern vernacular architecture into contemporary lifestyle solutions. The homes are designed to be beautiful, natural light infused, stylish, comfortable and energy efficient. Site flexibility is achieved through options in foundation arrangements and building details. Each client's site will receive careful analysis in consideration of orientation, views, energy, economy and program suitability.

  • Narrow footprints provide opportunity to maximize cross ventilation and establish proper solar orientation.

  • Passive solar features including: extensive eaves, solar screens and awnings positioned for best thermal performance, operable interior solar shades, superior insulation, high performance glass and windows. 

  • Interchangeable roof profiles: gable, butterfly and shed

  • Kits of parts for additions, floor plan variations, details, materials and finishes

  • Widely varied palette of environmentally preferable materials and appliances

  • Options available from one to five bedrooms plus bonus bedroom/office/studios
