2007 Addition over $250,000

The goal was to enlarge the living spaces and increase the natural ventilation that the site already enjoyed being located on the top of a hill. After investigating skylight wells and low vaulted ceilings, the solution was chosen to raise the roof on the back half of the house. Running a ribbon of operable clerestory windows at the high point created a natural upward current for cross ventilation and helped bathe the spaces with daylight from above. They detailed glu-laminated timber trusses with exposed steel plates for rustic styling in order to provide visual strength for the dramatic volume that was created. That theme was continued throughout the addition.
