A few progress shots of this outbuilding designed for an active family of four. Modern details include a standing seam metal roof that wraps down one face and cantilevers out over the opposite, south face for solar shading. The remaining exterior materials include Eter-Color cement board siding, galvalume corrugated metal siding, polished concrete and Douglas Fir. The large covered concrete porch faces an outdoor firepit and seating area, expanding and enhancing the opportunities for outdoor living behind the existing house. The simple shed roof slopes up toward the south end of the pod and allows for large south facing windows and an interior loft space.
A few snowy images of the Clark Road project. As beautiful as the snow is (and as great as it is for skiing), it does present some challenges for construction work. A bit of energy each day is devoted to shoveling and staying warm. Despite the snow and cold weather, progress continues. Exterior siding work is nearing completion, electrical and plumbing rough-in work is moving steadily along and insulation work has begun. In the studio, we are busy with design and detail work for the interior finishes.
Exterior siding and roofing work continues at the Clark Road project. The exterior siding materials are standing seam metal and high-density solid-color fiber cement board rainscreen cladding. The color is integral to the cement board and there are no surface coatings required (paint or otherwise) which makes for a very durable maintenance-free siding material. The gray colors of the metal and cement board contrast nicely with the exposed fir beams and complement the natural setting of this house.
