For her soddy she sought not to copy the pump house exactly but rather to create an equally rustic and singular small structure. She engaged architect Candace Tillitson-Miller because of her experience replicating historical styles (including being able to source historically appropriate products and materials) and her ability to tap talented local craftspeople.
