A new home on Sunset Lake in Girard, Illinois for a woman born on her 200 acre family farm in a Sears/Roebuck mail order home. The client, a single grandmother, wanted a home to reflect the very nature of the place she loved; CJP Architects design is a tapestry of elements common to farms of the region. This residence brought CJP architects a 1995 Central Illinois American Institute of Architects Honor Award for its design.
"This house exudes FAMILY. My parents made it all possible in the beginning; family friends designed it and built it; and it was where my grandkids tubed and water skied to their hearts' content behind my boat. My own family loved this home as much as I did, and then we all moved on after consolidating our base in this house."
