Port Ludlow House

The Port Ludlow Residence is a compact, 2400 SF modern house located on a wooded waterfront property at the north end of the Hood Canal, a long, fjord-like arm of western Puget Sound. The house creates a simple glazed living space that opens up to become a front porch to the beautiful Hood Canal.

The east-facing house is sited along a high bank, with a wonderful view of the water. The main living volume is completely glazed, with 12-ft. high glass walls facing the view and large, 8-ft.x8-ft. sliding glass doors that open to a slightly raised wood deck, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor space. During the warm summer months, the living area feels like a large, open porch. Anchoring the north end of the living space is a two-story building volume containing several bedrooms and separate his/her office spaces.

The interior finishes are simple and elegant, with IPE wood flooring, zebrawood cabinet doors with mahogany end panels, quartz and limestone countertops, and Douglas Fir trim and doors. Exterior materials are completely maintenance-free: metal siding and aluminum windows and doors. The metal siding has an alternating pattern using two different siding profiles.

The house has a number of sustainable or “green” building features, including 2x8 construction (40% greater insulation value); generous glass areas to provide natural lighting and ventilation; large overhangs for sun and rain protection; metal siding (recycled steel) for maximum durability, and a heat pump mechanical system for maximum energy efficiency. Sustainable interior finish materials include wood cabinets, linoleum floors, low-VOC paints, and natural wool carpet.

Thanks for your questions regarding our Port Ludlow project. The aluminum window system came from Michigan. I am sorry to report that the manufacturer is no longer in business. I do not publish specific costs of projects in order to protect my clients' privacy. However, I can tell you that our projects typically have a cost range of $350-$450 per square foot.

Hi,
Thanks for you question about our Port Ludlow project. The round wood-burning stove is a beautiful design by the Danish Company, RAIS.

These doors likely have invisable screens http://www.houzz.com/pro/phantom-screens/phantom-screens We also offer a silant air curtain system for wide openings which alows the space to remain completely open and a streem of air flows acroiss the opening keeping the insects out and the cool air in.

@dalbrickenden
Yes, you can get impact rated sliding & folding doors. We can provide up to 58" x 103" for a hurricane/impact rated sliding door panel. For non-hurricane/impact rated we can go up to 96" x 162" for a standard panel.

HI,
Thanks for your questions about our Port Ludlow project.
The stove is by RAIS, see http://us.rais.com/
The windows and sliding doors are LowE insulated glass with aluminum frames, made by a small company in Michigan that is no longer in business. In fact, we had enormous problems with delivery of the windows and doors because of the company's financial problems!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The main living space feels much larger than it is, because most of the walls are glass. Sliding glass doors that are 8 feet wide and 8 feet high open out to the giant front deck. The floors are ipe indoors and out, creating a seamless transition between the two areas. "During the warm summer months, the living area feels like a large, open porch," Finne says.Armchairs: B&B Italia; coffee table, rug: custom design by Finne; woodstove: Rais
3. Our work takes us everywhere. “We have about 50 percent of our work out of town,” says Finne, whose office is in Seattle, “so every month I take several trips to visit jobsites and meet with clients and contractors.” So if you’ve been limiting your search to pros in your immediate area, you may be able to widen that circle. See pros whose work you admire on Houzz? Don’t be afraid to contact them and ask if they take jobs in your area.How to contact an architect and get your project going
