Ridgeview Valley - Bear Cubs

Ridgeview Valley - Bear Cubs

Last Spring we had the opportunity and privilege to keep some bear cubs warm on the Ridgeview Valley property while Maryland DNR replaced a battery in their Mother's collar, which DNR uses to track the State's bear population.  Maryland public television came out to film the event, and some asked questions about the mother taking back the cubs after humans had held them. We followed up with DNR a few weeks later and yes, the mother did accept her cubs back into the den, and it is in fact common for them to do so.

Contemporary Custom Home designed on Deep Creek Lake

This custom home, built on Laurel Lane near the Deep Creek Lake State Park, was designed by McInturff Architects.  This contemporary design strays from the traditional architecture that occupies the shorelines of Deep Creek Lake, and our builders were up for the challenge.  The typical Garrett County winters could be stressful on the flat roofs, so one has to be mindful of snow loads and water drainage, and this elegant design provided structure and drainage, ready for the harshest snow conditions. 

The abundance of glass lends itself perfectly to the stretch of lakefront that presents to the kitchen, dining, and living room.

This home features multiple energy efficient systems including an ICF Foundation (Insulated Concrete Forms), spray foam insulation, and a hybrid heating system from Carrier with Greenspeed intelligence.  This system integrates a heat pump recovery system with a gas furnace.  For example, when you set your thermostat to 70 degrees, the furnace kicks on, but once it gets to a certain temperature, maybe about 65, the heat pump recovery system takes over, and saves on your propane usage. 

We thoroughly enjoyed working with this design team, and we are humbled by this testimonial from the architect, Mark McInturff, FAIA:

"As architects ( or homeowners), when we build at a distance , it is important to select a builder who will always do the right thing- communicate well,  know when to ask questions, and execute a consistent level of craft that doesn't need watching over.

Gosnell is just that kind of builder. From preliminary planning to final punch list, they are a pleasure to work with and consummate professionals.

As a result, we don't need to be at the site every day to make it right. They are there, and it will be right."

Fiddler's Green - Deep Creek Lake

Fiddler's Green is a lakeside retreat on Deep Creek Lake, designed by local Architect Phil Silkey, AIA.  This home is the perfect retreat for family and friends relaxing for the weekend at Deep Creek Lake.  A contemporary cottage inspired by the Lake and boat houses of the late 19th century, this home fulfilled the owners need for a larger cottage with internal boat storage. Challenged with a narrow lot on Deep Creek Lake, a small footprint incorporates a first class energy package within a naturally finished Douglas fir timber structure, and features lakefront glass, stone fireplaces, a waterproof stone deck, and a stone faced bar.

This custom home includes an extremely energy efficient hybrid system from Carrier with their greenspeed technology.  The hybrid technology combines a propane furnace with a highly efficient heat pump.  We also incorporated under slab insulation, spray foam insulation, and tankless water heaters.  The home automation system monitors the energy use and controls other systems in the home as well.
