2009 Best Detached Outbuilding Co-winner
National Winner

This detached structure will function as the owner's temporary living quarters while the main house is under construction. Minimal disruption to the existing coastal habitat was of paramount importance to the owner, and extensive measures were taken to insure compliance with these requirements. Due to site access constraints, steel pipe pilings were used in lieu of conventional concrete and elliptical glulam beams were assembled on site. Full-scale templates were created for beams, windows and doors for exact conformance to fourteen radius control points. Built with the precision of a finely crafted wooden ship, the project exemplifies indigenous architecture, workmanship, and materials suitable to withstand the harsh coastal environment.
