Fir Grove House

An open living space faces onto the dappled shade provided by a mature grove of fir trees. A second detached building houses a guest suite and garage. The careful arrangement of buildings on the lot delineates a series of protected and intimate outdoor spaces. Fir harvested on site is used in details throughout the building. Sand from the lot is used in the layered texture of the rammed earth fireplace. Geothermal energy is used to heat and cool the house.
