Unfortunately I never took any photos of the interior. Sorry. The upper level is living dining kitchen and entry along with a couple of bedrooms. The lower level is a recreation room, library and study as well as storage.

It is a Pacific Northwest design using wood frame and cedar exterior, materials that are very common in the area. The Pacific Northwest has low levels of light in the winter and a moderate climate, not too hot, not too cold. In response, I designed this home to take advantage of and mitigate the downside of this climate.

I recently designed a home for Bangalore India using white-washed brick over concrete block and concrete floor slabs. Narrow windows, sunshades, and flow through ventilation were incorporated to help mitigate the heat and bright sun.

Another home in the Carmel California hills was designed of stucco, wood and concrete block. It spread out into the grasslands to provide courtyards and cross ventilation. Small porches were incorporated to moderate the sun and provide screened areas for bug control.

I guess what I am trying to get at is that homes should be designed to use local materials and make the best out of the local climate. Importing a style can lead to an unhappy result.

I think that is the back. This picture appears to be the front.

I checked out White Drifts OC-138 by Benjamin Moore but it looks much lighter than the color shown in the picture.

How do you manage light control in this house? Window treatments? If so, what type and if not then what?

This house is in Seattle

Folks there want as much light in their homes as possible - and since this home probably overlooks the Sound, light and views are of the greatest importance.
