Steve Kibler is an architect based in Chicago. Recently, he commissioned me with making a series of exterior photographs of this recently completed residence in Bloomington, IL. The home is uniquely beautiful!
One of the key design elements is the cedar cladding shown below in the entryway. Coincidentally, Steve first contacted me without knowing that I am related to Ross, who was part of the crew from Prairie Woodworks that built and installed all of the cladding and interior woodwork. (Ross is my brother-in-law, and regular readers will remember that he built our table.) So this was an especially meaningful assignment for me!
And in the rear, these glorious windows!
Unfortunately, there was some wind on this otherwise lovely evening – but we wanted to shoot in a hurry before we lost fall color and leaves and warm weather this week, so it was the lesser of two evils.
Thank you for the opportunity, Steve! Thank you to the accommodating owners for their assistance on this shoot. Congratulations to all of you on this remarkable home.
