Inspiration for a large contemporary multicolored three-story wood exterior home remodel in Seattle

Greenlake Modern Home

Contemporary Exterior, Seattle

This single family home in the Greenlake neighborhood of Seattle is a modern home with a strong emphasis on sustainability. The house includes a rainwater harvesting system that supplies the toilets and laundry with water. On-site storm water treatment, native and low maintenance plants reduce the site impact of this project. This project emphasizes the relationship between site and building by creating indoor and outdoor spaces that respond to the surrounding environment and change throughout the seasons.

    For general reference.... The aprox. Cost for the total system (tanks, pumps,pipes,etc.) was about 15k. The tanks themselves were about 4k. While I personally have no problem with sand filters and chlorine (and have drunk form these kind of systems often), our local authorities here in washington state do. We are required to have two layers of particle filtration plus active UV for potable systems. non potable; all they care about is system separation and labeling.
