Dwelling: Construction

The 2,000 Enclosed Square Foot Kickapoo Dwelling was designed and built between August 2003 and September 2004. There was a concerted effort to locally source materials, craftsmen, and labor—local builder McCanse Builders, Inc. not only constructed Kickapoo Dwelling, but also worked closely with the architect and the owners from early in the design process through completion. One of the most important aspects of the construction process was working to minimize construction damage to the land.
