Northwest Residence

Northwest Residence

Pacific Northwest

This original Rolland Terry-designed mid-century modern renovation features heavy timber structures, reuses the tongue and groove fir from the original house, and incorporates local stonework on both the interior and exterior. Steel strongbacks brace the existing foundation allowing for a raised first-floor elevation while avoiding additional shoring, demolition, and construction of new foundations. Concealed kerf plates and hidden fasteners provide hidden connections within the custom milled timber structure. Cantilevered floor and roof diaphragms enable expansive picture windows to run the entire width of the home, taking advantage of the lake views. This thoughtfully organized renovation minimizes the building’s scale to blend seamlessly with the 2-acre site.
