• This stone and cedar home with a wrap-around porch is actually larger than it appears. Simple, crossing ridge lines hide other parts of the house. The slate roof and copper awnings and chimney cap add a feeling of natural beauty and permanence.

  • A hand-drawn perspective adds detail quickly over a computer model printout. Comparing this to the finished house shows how valuable 3D tools are in understanding a design before it’s built.

  • Combining horizontal and vertical lines in the stair rail is a contemporary twist on a traditional Craftsman motif.

  • The stone is natural face buff sandstone, the windows are copper clad cherry wood. This window is a custom designed stained glass piece.

  • This hallway acts as a gallery. This solid sandstone wall that anchors one end continues the exterior stone volume into the interior.

  • A more contemporary kitchen still feels at home here because of the warmth of the cherry wood and the soft linoleum floor.

  • This innovative two-way timber truss supports the hip roof at the edge of the stairwell without the need for a column in the space.

  • The vaulted ceiling in the master suite is supported by recycled timber trusses with old fashioned joinery.

  • The closets are free standing within the larger volume and have no ceilings in order to share the ambient light of the room. The sliding doors are custom designed shoji screens.
