This husband and wife assumed they would never be able to afford the modern house of their dreams, but one day they discovered a surprisingly affordable lot and decided to see if they could do the impossible.  Many considered the heavily wooded lot ‘unbuildable’ because it was squeezed behind five suburban McMansions, it was dotted with granite outcroppings, and its irregular shape made it hard to imagine a conventional house; but the lot’s perceived ‘unbuildability’ made it affordable, and a small clearing at one end beckoned to the clients.
