E. Cobb Architect's "Open House" is featured on the cover of Home and Architectural Trends Magazine this month (check out full article here).  The house presented a very unique structural challenge.  The aircraft hangar door, that assists in the openness, imposes a 10,000 pound thrust on the house while it opens.  Some creative structural design allowed for this door to be placed while keeping the structure light.  Click below for construction photos.
