Kirkland Residence craftsman-exterior

Kirkland Residence

This 4,500 square foot house faces eastward across Lake Washington from Kirkland toward the Seattle skyline. The clients have an appreciation for the Foursuare style found in many of the historic homes in the area, and designing a home that fit this vocabulary while also conforming to the zoning height limits was the primary challenge. The plan includes a music room, study, craft room, breakfast nook, and 5 bedrooms, all of which pinwheel off of a centrally located stair. Sylights in the center of the house flood the home with natural light from the ceiling through an opening in the second floor down to the main level.

This was done by a roofing company local the Puget Sound area. I'm not sure who his supplier is.

This is all done in the field with pre-primed spruce. None of the exterior trim is integral to the window. Look up Windsor One. It's a great product and worth the money.

This is Sherwin Williams paint, although I am unsure of the color (owner selected 3 years ago). Colors get altered a surprising degree during digital photo editing and when displayed on your monitor (everyone's color settings are different). See this link on digital color management >

The vast majority of questions we get on our projects are regarding color, and I strongly suggest you get a color wheel or sample fan from your supplier of choice. You can start by finding the sample that most closely matches the color on your monitor, but don't stop there. Look at the samples in both natural and artificial light before making your choice...the difference will surprise you.

Could you tell me who made this door--is it natural wood or fiberglass?

If memory serves, its oak. Probably a Simpson door -- #6542 or 6546.

This was a color match that we did off of an existing house, but we used Sherwin Williams paint. The siding is Hardiplank with a smooth finish and 3 1/2" reveals. Hope this helps!
