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.

I love the metal copper roofing. Where did you get it? - My local metal roof supplier has a copper metallic but it is extremely bright like a penny. The copper on this home is more of a burnished tone. I would prefer the aged look over the bright and shiny copper.

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

Windows - So pretty, how did you make the window sill/lip extend outside of the window frame on each side? What material did you use? Thank you.

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.

What color is the off-white? - I have a really hard time finding an off-white that I like, but I love the color you've chosen here for your trim and pillars. Would you mind sharing?

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.

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

Looks nearlly identical to the color we just painted our home. It is Sherwin Williams Functional Grey 7024 at 175% increase.

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!
