Starkman House, Paso Robles, California. Norm Applebaum.
“The architecture was created for my client Linda Starkman, a horse woman, and is named after the site known as Fox Hollow. She had owned the property for 25 years before building her home.
Completed in 2015 the home took 5 years to design and construct with major overhangs cantilevering out 25′ to 75′. Concrete is used for the roof in order to control wind loads of up to 85 mph. The structure is steel post and beam with steel I beams 27 inches high, weighting 227 pounds per lineal foot.
The square footage of the house is 4,357 square feet and is woven amongst 3 ancient multi-trunked oak trees. The location of the house is a tree covered knoll which is part of a 320 acre site where warmblood horses are raised and feed is grown. The location is on the west side of Paso Robles, California.”
