Autumn Hill Lane update

Exterior finish work is nearing completion on this project.  The wall and ceiling of the front entry porch are lined with douglas fir, and the wall of the house surrounding the front door is finished with rusted steel panels.  The warm colors of these materials complement the gray colors of the standing seam metal roofing and cement board siding. The combination creates a welcoming entry, clearly visible from the driveway approach.  There is a built-in bench on the porch that cantilevers from the west wall of the porch.  A horizontal opening in the porch wall allows for seasonal views eastward to Camel's Hump mountain.

Autumn Hill Lane Update

We are fast approaching the completion of the Autumn Hill Lane house.  We have been fortunate to work with a collection of great builders and craftsmen on this project.  The efforts have been extraordinary across the board and as the finishing touches are happening it is particularly gratifying to see the end result.  Its been over a year since we began design work and it is very exciting to see the house coming together (and coming to life).

We are fast approaching the final stages of the Autumn Hill Lane project and its looking great.  Here are some progress shots.  The interior shots show the main open living space (21' tall) which will contain the kitchen, dining and living room.  The exterior windows face south and look out onto adjacent woods.  The site is a south-facing slope, with the bedrooms located on a walk-out level below the main living space.  The effect of the elevated floor level and large windows in the main living space is of being in a tree house.  The exterior shots show the front (north) elevation with cement board siding and aluminum trim partially installed.

Construction is well underway on the Autumn Hill Lane house.  The foundations are done and backfilled and the framing has begun.  Construction photos to come soon.  In the meantime, here are a few 3-D images of the exterior.
