High Above the Water

Perched on a stunning San Juan Islands granite outcropping, this timber-framed home basks in natural light and stunning views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The home is crafted for an active, work-from-home professional couple bent on embracing the best of the Pacific Northwest. Inspired by the architecture of the clients’ favorite destination resorts, this unique timber frame construction prioritizes windows and views. The rustic home’s entry leads out to a walkway bridge and into the madrona and fir-nestled auto court beyond. Natural materials of stone and wood shingle siding wrap the home’s exterior and create a tree house-like aesthetic, allowing the home to emerge from the landscape and capture breathtaking sunset views.
