This is the 2nd new home we’ve completed for this client. He and his wife are big fans of the “Greene & Greene” Architecture and the American Craftsman Bungalow of the early 1900’s. More specifically speaking, the world famous “Gamble House” in Pasadena, CA. With this house, they wanted to integrate a little “Northwest Lodge” into their design. The shaved timber columns on the front and back porches and metal railings, give it a more rustic look and unique feel. The shingles are Northeastern White Cedar which is rarely seen in the PNW. As you can see, they lay down perfectly and surely compliment the painted Cedar siding and trim colors. The large porch ceilings are clear coated Knotty Pine and the decking is Iron Wood, that certainly add to that “Lodge” look and feel. The landscaping is beautifully executed in a “Northwest Asian” theme. They artfully incorporated new trees and rock into the existing foliage, creating a natural flow that truly compliments the Architecture. These night photos remind me of Thomas Kincaid painting. This client had a very specific vision of their dream house and it was our pleasure to work with them and help make their dream…..a reality!!
