This classic family home on Olympia’s Boston Harbor is rooted in the architectural traditions of the shingle style. It speaks of longevity, commitment, generosity and family gatherings over time. Built on a dramatic site with views across Puget Sound to the Olympic Mountains, the house sits at the edge of a grove of mature cedars, which ground the structure visually with their great height and presence at the entry side.
Nor does a room like this, which can easily show fall festivity through wreaths and garlands strung around the perimeter of the room. Rooms with views like this can add gourds, pumpkins, and small evergreens just outside, in plain view.
