The 16–by-24-foot studio has a simple open gable plan. Rough-cut pine shiplap, milled just down the road, warms the cathedral ceiling. Douglas fir beams (four-by-eights) break up the ceiling’s expanse. The flooring is engineered hickory. Browne sourced as many of his materials from Maine as possible.He wanted to include a loft in the design – until a friend sent over a photo of a lofted net. Browne took one look and thought, “This is going to be cheaper” – not to mention more fun. Natural light also wouldn’t be affected, since the netting wouldn’t obstruct any of the office’s windows.Using 4-by-8 Douglas fir beams to frame the 8-by-11-foot loft space, Browne secured a construction safety net using I-hooks and an aircraft cable. He says the net has stretched out a little, but he finds it even more loungeworthy now. (One of his sons is shown enjoying the net here.)
