New Build

Like many of you out there I would love to one day design and build a new home. I thought I would post a collage of photos of different homes that inspire me and create a small vision of what my future dream house might look like.

This home would be built on an irregular shaped lot surrounded by the trees and rock that are typical of the Pacific Northwest landscape. I would also love for these elements to be incorporated into the structure. The majority of beams, millwork and structural components would be Douglas Fir or Red Cedar, with some local granite and stone elements. I would also add concrete, floor to ceiling windows and my personal taste for some industrial aesthetic throughout.

Essentially, I envision a sort of a turn of the century mill, barn or warehouse meeting a contemporary concrete home, and adapting itself to a beautiful West Coast lot. We can all dream, can't we? :)
