Active Pass House
Completed 2014 – Footprint: 1600 Sq. Feet
North detail of residence
We worked directly with the owners on this large-scale renovation that necessitated a partial second floor to increase the house’s size while staying within its original footprint.
Our clients envisioned timber trusses on the main floor but the engineer required laminated veneer lumber for strength.
We will work with you or your designer to take advantage of your site’s views, natural light, cooling breezes, and shade areas.
The addition required extensive concrete work for structural integrity. We kept the roof intact in the remaining part of the house while we changed all the walls underneath to accommodate new windows and doors.
We finished the exterior in a combination of cedar bevel siding, cedar shingles and a feature rock wall by the entrance. We fabricated custom metal flashings for use at the corners, windows, and doors to eliminate the need for trim.
It was a satisfying project, transforming a house while staying within its existing footprint.
