How tall did the truss need to be for this span and overhang? - I think this looks great. I am working on a house that calls for a 16'" I truss that would result in a 16 inch facia board. I am afraid that would be too much.

this one is about the same but the roof is actually a double hip - hard to see, but thats how we ended up with the thin edge profile

What is the wood siding material used? - Can you tell me what the wood material used on the siding is? Is it a tongue and groove board? How is it applied for exterior usage? And how is it finished? Thanks for the help!

Is there a reason to use shiplap instead of tongue and groove?
August 26, 2013 at 11:12AM   
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Coates Design Architects Seattle
there is no significant technical advantage other than it is easier to hide the fastener with a shiplap. also the shiplap has a rectangular reveal while the T&G often has a V-groove. its a matter of visual preference.

Roofing Material - Kudos on the house. Really beautiful and smart. May I ask what you used for roofing material. Is it an adhered synthetic membrane? And how do you deal with thermal bridging ; the exterior soffit seems to flow into the building!

Budget ballpark - I love the NW style you use in your design. I am in the process of getting my funding together for a remodel of a 30x28 bungalow in Ballard. We plan on adding either a 16x30 addition off the back or just go up a floor. I want to transform the look of our boring house into something like this picture with a shed style roof and the combined use of wood, steel, glass and stone. What can I expect to spend on that type of project? Can NW contemporary be "affordable"?

great!....hope to hear from you soon. we can talk scope and possible phasing if needed, though you should be able to make a significant improvement with that budget....depending on how much you want to accomplish.

I would be very interested to see what design you come up with for this house. I am in the same position with a house that is similar in size.

I wonder why the tread on the steps is so narrow, the steps look very steep. I like a minimum 12" tread for safety and comfort.

how do you address the drainage issues? - I love this design with the extended brow roof. I am concerned that on my property because I live on a hillside that rainwater will saturate the hillside on the back side of the house. The land has been graded and compacted so should I be without worry ( during the unusually heavy rainstorms approx. six years agoI had a mudslide due to the fact that the previous owners had a retaining wall that was not structural in the back. It was basically floating on the dirt)?

Are those external gutters on the fascia of the flat roof section? If so, where did you get them and what are their dimensions? Thanks for your help!

the gutters are custom - but the roof is not flat actually, it is a hip roof

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Another Seattle residence illustrates how roof overhangs are often linked to abundant glass at the exterior wall and outdoor space below. This example is pint-size compared to the previous two Pacific Northwest ones, so it's good to see that these roofs can happen at various scales.
Lindsey M. Roberts added this to Roof Overhangs Project Lower Energy Costs
Large roof overhangs on a house by Coates Design Architects in Seattle do more than put a modernist stamp on the structure. They also protect it from the Pacific Northwest's driving winter rain and mitigate hot summer sun.
Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Ways to Boost Your Home's Resale Value
1. Hire a pro. Consider hiring a pro to take a look at your home and offer advice. One morning spent with a home inspector, a real estate agent or a local designer can give you insight into what potential buyers will see when they look at your home — and can save you money in the long run.
