The home, designed by Designs Northwest Architects, sits at the bottom of an extremely steep slope, that experiences periodic shallow surface mud slides. As mud slides are a definite possibility, and due to the location of the home being on a remote beach without road access, making it too difficult to bring in heavy equipment and concrete trucks, the architects decided to design the home above the ground on low profile steel columns, instead of a 10 foot tall retainer wall. Due the home being raised up on the columns, there’s the added benefit of plenty of storage space for canoes and kayaks. Concrete stairs lead you from ground level up into the living areas. Inside, the living room and kitchen share the same space, with an entire wall of windows providing views of Puget Sound. Steel and wood stairs lead you to the upper floor of the home. Upstairs are the bedrooms, both are flooded with natural light. The bathtub in the bathroom has amazing water views. The home also has a deck on the top floor, perfect for relaxing, keeping an eye out for whales. and enjoying the sunset.
