When its right you know it…….After eight years, three different properties, three conceptual designs, added to significant life altering interruptions, our clients, ever in touch with their surroundings, call their new home “Water Music”.
This build site is one of the most beautiful and unusual we have had to work with. It is surrounded on three sides by a robust mountain creek, 100 foot tall Hemlocks and solid rock. The setting demanded a house to be designed to respect the site, setbacks from the creek, the steep approach and the lifestyle considerations of the client. I know we have a winner.
So far we have moved over 800 cubic yards of rock (blasted in order to do so) and used this to create a more friendly drive to the build site. “Water Music” has been designed to fully appreciate nature. Every room will have spectacular views, the stairwell, adjacent to three story wall of glass, will be filled with light. Materials are neutral or natural. Energy efficiency has been designed into the structure using high performance Jeld-Wen windows and doors, Icynene spray foam insulation, and high SEER rated HVAC equipment.
This project has so many wow factors to share, please stay tuned, we will be updating this post routinely.
