Yamhill County, OR
April 2020 - December 2022
A low-impact, small footprint home for a young family in the heart of Pinot Noir country.
The home has been designed to take advantage of regional wind patterns for passive cooling and interior spaces oriented to promote convective heating.
The siting of the home minimizes alterations to the existing grade and maintains as much of the existing forest as possible. Situated on the edge of a 30 acre Doug Fir / Oregon Oak woodland, the project adheres to strict wildfire guidelines for building materials, ventilation systems and structural buffer zones.
All trees felled for the project were utilized as both structural and finish material for the new home.
...and of course, this amazing madrone :)
