Lopez Island Compound

The house is up on piers to minimize its impact on the site. Corrugated sheet metal siding picks up the silver seaside light and minimizes maintanance. The exposed roof framing adds warmth and picks up on the bark of the surrounding madrone trees. the painted doors and windows pick up on the forest foliage.

Thanks for your question! The windows were manufactured by Dynamic Windows based in Abbottsford, B.C. outside Vancouver. Here's a link to their website:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: 3 Small Buildings Maximize Nature Views
"A lot of houses are just what we call view machines, with each room focusing only on the same view of the water," Mohler says. "This site had an incredible diverse natural landscape, and we wanted to expose the architecture to all the property had to offer."Team:Principal in charge: Rik Adams, with Rick Mohler and Rick GhillinoGeneral contractor: JAS Design Build
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: How to Make a Home Sit Lightly on the Land
Piers can be made of cast concrete, steel, concrete block, brick or specially treated wood. For sites with poor soils or that are subject to flooding, helical steel piers are a good choice (and are mandated by code in some areas).
