I forgot that the "bridge home" is on Trillium. I drove by this morning on my way to work (no time for bike today I'm afraid). Beautiful morning. Many of my coworkers have been through this home, they say it is really incredible inside (and NOT reminiscient of a trailor home). I can see the exterior being a matter of personal preference, I happen to like it. The advantage for a neighbor I saw is the undiminished sightline to the west (for 2977), the bridge home is so low profile it allows for a better view.
Noah, it looks like you have been looking at homes for a while, when are you going to come to town and check them out for yourself? Enjoy the day, Todd
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I happen to think it is beautiful and very unique. Recently I took a few retired friends by the house for a look and one of them loved it and two thought why did they build it.
This structure you speak of is really a very cool "Bridge House". It spans a shallow ravine without posts. I believe they used I-beams from a highway bridge. It is as you see long (from North to South) and narrow (from East to West). I walked around it during its begining and met some workers who gave me a nickel tour once it took more shape. It feels like an older mobile home (but much nicer) with its' long hallway and rooms off to one side. I love houses of all shapes and sizes and I know most of the interesting ones in the greater Ann Arbor area.

Good luck in your quest for a new home.
