The Hayes/Gully House received its name because the lot which backs up to Emigration Creek. The clients had lived in this house for many years before deciding to completely reconstruct the home to fit their new needs as a family. All aspects of the design were a collaboration between owner-artist Andy Hayes, the designers, and Tall Pines Construction. The home is a marriage of the old and the new: Old World style in a Modern light, the antique with the cutting edge, industrial salvage with new clean lines, the energy inefficient 1940’s boom house transformed into the sustainable home of the future.
