Shaw Island - Washington
This is a post and beam two-storey family residence, with a total area of 2,023 sq ft. The architecture of this house puts careful, elegant detailing front and centre. The connection details were simple to fabricate and install, allowing the owner of the house to perform most of the work himself, despite the remote location.
The architectural design showcases the structural aspects of the building, and a high level of standardization kept costs down by reducing material waste and allowing pre-fabrication.
