The Project

 

The Bristol Project House was conceived in early 2009, and construction began in the fall 2009 with the foundation poured and framing underway.  The project will be a unique collaboration among the many parties that must come together to complete a new home construction effort.

The house is located on a lovely one and one half acre site in the Highlands community in Bristol, Rhode Island.  The house sits high on a hill, facing west and overlooking Narragansett Bay and the Aldridge Estate on Warwick Neck.
