Residential Project Profile: house on a very steep lot!!

Steep lots are challenging to build on, but often come with very good views. This architect designed home was built to take advantage of the excellent views, fit onto a small ledge on a hillside and comes with a small energy footprint. Among other features it has a high efficiency heat pump and an additional 4” of foam insulation on the outside of the building.

Other Featured Projects: One of a kind Alaskan house

This home has many unusual features that you have to see to believe. Secret passageways for the kids(actually cannot see them, they are a secret!), a stairway through the middle of a tree, walk the plank to the water watch room, and memorabilia and pieces of many of Ketchikan’s historical buildings worked into the fabric of the house. This was the mastermind of the owner, and while we built the main structure and installed windows and doors, the homeowner completed the finishes.

Other Featured Projects: Rustic Cabin with all the conveniences

This cabin was built primarily with local wood milled in Ketchikan. The 10 foot ceilings and open beams make it feel very spacious despite its small size. We call it a cabin but it has heated tiled bathroom floors, on demand hot water, an energy efficient heat pump, a hand painted mural on a wall, and other amenities.
