True Craftsmanship| 

Studio B6 is privileged to lend support in the development of the Rodman Company's custom homes.
Rodman homes have evolved into a mountain design reminiscent of “Old Tahoe” lodge style retreats. These homes, built in the craftsman style, feature vaulted ceilings, exposed timber trusses, furniture style cabinetry and massive stone fireplaces. Great care is taken in selecting picturesque sites with panoramic lakeviews or golf course settings to showcase the Rodman product. Well-designed floor plans, superb craftsmanship and the finest materials are the Rodman Company's trademarks. For more information and photos, please log on to www.rodmanattahoe.com.

Bain Springs Sustainable Design
Perched on a high desert peak overlooking the city lights of Reno and Washoe Valley/Mt Rose this 3 bedroom home could only be powered by the Sun. 
Unfortunately, the site location made the use of public utilities cost prohibitive. The solution was to implement a 100% off the grid design, utilizing both wind and solar power as well as Integrated Concrete Form construction. By leveraging 3D CAD technology we were able to enhance the design by calculating sun paths for eave window placement and structure orientation. Operable windows were positioned in dormers to take advantage of prevailing winds for daily cooling and circulation.
