Great Room

Contemporary Living Room

This small house was designed as a retreat for an artist and photographer couple. To blend into the beautiful rugged setting the materials were selected to be basic and durable. Thick walls are finished with white interior plaster and black exterior stucco. Natural wood is layered at the ceilings and extend southward to shade the large windows. The floors are of radiantly heated concrete. Supplemental heat is provided by a Danish wood stove. The roof extends east covering a flagstone terrace for exterior gatherings and dining.

    Hi Suzanne,

    Its turned out to be a great ceiling/roof solution.

    Here is the roof assembly from inside-out.

    Douglas Fir beams and cross-members.

    Rough sawn cedar plywood face down with a dark brown stain.

    6" of foam insulation above the plywood w/ 3/4 plywood above.

    Pre-finished metal roofing.

    There are three skylights at the intersections of the fir members.
