Port Orford Residence

The house is a single-story house with a daylit basement and a loft. The main floor was raised above the grade to maximize views. A stone veneer covers the high foundation walls as well as the fireplace. In order to resist high wind loads the windows are 1/4 inch tempered glass over 3/16 inch laminated glass. Maritime imagery was achieved designing the prominent hip with a Tudor arch beam/column reminiscent of boat keel. This special structural element anchors the house from the corner of the view side up the wall and extending the full length of the hip. The deck guardrail is designed with horizontal stainless steel rods to optimize and unobstructed views, yet provide a solid maintenance free rail. The home is energy efficient as the majority of the light fixtures are fluorescent or compact fluorescent and the heating system is a two zone geothermal system utilizing the earth of heating. The contractor and their subs took amazing pride in the construction of this project, providing excellent workmanship throughout.
