What Houzz contributors are saying:

The client had asked Andersson for a log house, but the architect didn’t want to mimic the framed Sheetrock houses with logs stuck on the outside that are typical of the area. Instead, he developed a steel framing system that holds cordwood from Douglas fir, grand fir and ponderosa pine found on the property, much of which was diseased and needed to be removed anyway. Andersson kiln-dried and cleaned up the wood to create the exposed insulation, which covers double-thick masonry walls that include a moisture barrier. “When you’re that rigorous with your materials, there’s a level of abstraction that the building takes on,” he says. “It’s not encumbered by busy architectural details.”Andersson, of Andersson-Wise Architects, created a portion in the wall for a window, with its own steel frame, so that it can be loaded up with wood during the winter. Then, as the homeowner burns through the wood, the window brings in more and more light.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Smart Ways to Store Wood Outdoors
As we dig a little deeper, the architect’s careful attention to the experience of the inhabitants is equally interesting. Note the thin metal frame marking the perimeter frame of a window. The wood stacked inside the frame obstructs the view, but as the Montana winter wears on and more wood is consumed, more light is permitted into the space behind. Perhaps a metaphor for the changing light as spring approaches, this also gets at the very nature of what it means to burn wood to heat your home. It’s a process of moving logs from outside to inside, and you watch the stack melt away as spring inches closer. This process undeniably enriches the experience of living in this home.See more of this home
