Our clients wanted a home that was timeless and would be enjoyed by their family for many generations. Its precedents were the shingled homes built for summer use on the shores of the Atlantic at the turn of the 1900s. It is located on a private lane and faces south taking full advantage of the views of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier. White painted projecting bays bring in light and views as well as providing the detailing that gives the home its timeless quality. Every effort was made to introduce traditional handcrafted techniques to strengthen the ageless quality.
