Lever Homes

"Give me a place to stand and I shall move the Earth with a lever." - Archimedes

This 5-Star Built-Green project is a three story, two-unit townhome sited on a vacant lot near the corner of 26th Ave S. and S. Judkins Street in Seattle. Due to the slender proportion of the lot, the units are arranged in a front-to-back configuration relative to the street. The street-facing, 1bedroom unit is 840sf and the east-facing, 3 bedroom unit is 1440sf.

Some key features are ductless mini-split heating and Air Conditioning, tankless hot water, LED Lighting throughout, strand woven bamboo, Formaldehyde free BIBS insulation, high efficiency windows and many non-VOC paints and finishes.

First Lamp acted as both designer and builder on this project.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The front of this two-unit townhouse in Seattle has a few materials: wood, metal, glass. Of note here is the crook-like metal projection of the roof, meeting a narrow wood strip on the right.
