Large arts and crafts gray three-story wood exterior home photo in Seattle with a shingle roof

Greenlake Residence

Craftsman Exterior, Seattle

This Greenlake area home is the result of an extensive collaboration with the owners to recapture the architectural character of the 1920’s and 30’s era craftsman homes built in the neighborhood. Deep overhangs, notched rafter tails, and timber brackets are among the architectural elements that communicate this goal. Given its modest 2800 sf size, the home sits comfortably on its corner lot and leaves enough room for an ample back patio and yard. An open floor plan on the main level and a centrally located stair maximize space efficiency, something that is key for a construction budget that values intimate detailing and character over size.

    The horizontal siding is Hardie plank with 5" exposure, smooth finish .The shingles are painted cedar shingles. Hope this helps!

Deep overhangs, top-notched rafter tails and timber knee brackets add to this home's Craftsman charm.
