Skagit Valley Timberframe

Return to Timberframe Portfolio
The Northwest Craftsman tradition influences this vacation and retirement home. Built on the site of an old farmhouse, this 1,670-square-foot home’s simple form fits well within its rural Skagit Valley farmland setting.

The home celebrates craftsmanship and the richness of wood; the timberframe and cabinets were made from recycled Douglas fir. The kitchen, living, and dining areas are on the main floor, facing water views and centered around a massive stone fireplace. The main floor also includes the master bedroom and a bathroom. Behind the fireplace, a stair leads to a loft, second bedroom, and a second bathroom. A balcony with a small wood-burning stove is situated over the entry on the northern side of the house, providing a quiet place to enjoy the idyllic long summer evenings of the Northwest, and spectacular sunsets over the nearby San Juan Islands.
