San Juan Island Retreat
The framing crew has arrived and construction has begun. This 680 sf craftsman-style cabin is a hybrid mix of our laminated timbers and stud wall construction. The design includes two bedrooms, open living / kitchen / dining, 1 full bath, a half bath and an enclosed sun porch.
It took about 3 weeks to complete the shell for this home.
Cedar Home in Nagano, Japan
A custom 1,364 sf chalet is under construction in Nagano, Japan. The homeowner is project managing with help (as needed) from a local contractor.
This 3-bedroom, 1 bath home shipped shortly after the devastating March, 2011 earthquake. The homeowner also battled multiple typhoons during construction and heavy snowfall.
What a relief to have the roof on and begin interior finish work!
Custom Garage with Apartment
The building crew is making good progress on this post and beam custom garage. The unheated garage area is 37' x 28'. Plenty of room for 3 cars -- or in this case, two cars and a boat.
The overhead bonus room is 1,049 sf. It includes an open kitchen, dining living area - all with access to the deck (and a fabulous view!). A bedroom, full bath and closet complete the upper level.
What Our Clients Are Saying...
"Unlocking Our Dream"
Cedar Homes of Washington were the key to unlocking our dream of designing and building a home of a lifetime. Without their patience, enthusiasm, and commitment to providing information, insight and guidance through the entire custom home process, from conceptualization through construction, we would still be just dreaming. As trying an experience as being an owner/builder is, we have many wonderful memories and would in fact love to do it all again. We're sure that result has as much to do with our relationship with Cedar Homes of Washington as it does with anything else.
