Inspiration for a modern wood exterior home remodel in Seattle

Lever Homes

Modern Exterior, Seattle

"Give me a place to stand and I shall move the Earth with a lever." - Archimedes This 5-Star Built-Green project is a three story, two-unit townhome sited on a vacant lot near the corner of 26th Ave S. and S. Judkins Street in Seattle. Due to the slender proportion of the lot, the units are arranged in a front-to-back configuration relative to the street. The street-facing, 1bedroom unit is 840sf and the east-facing, 3 bedroom unit is 1440sf. Some key features are ductless mini-split heating and Air Conditioning, tankless hot water, LED Lighting throughout, strand woven bamboo, Formaldehyde free BIBS insulation, high efficiency windows and many non-VOC paints and finishes. First Lamp acted as both designer and builder on this project.

    I'm not sure about this one. The installers on this project were very handy with their metal folding tools so I wouldn't be surprised if they field fab'd them, although it seems like a part that would be available from the factory. This detail has been done enough that you should be able to show pictures to your sheet metal contractor and they can replicate the detail without too much further information from you.

The rear elevation works similarly to the front, except the metal extension of the roof reaches closer to the ground.
