Home 5

This house was featured in the Spokesman-Review Home section May of 2007. I designed and built it. I sold it to a young couple soon after I started it. A lot of the interior features were there ideas. We worked together to make this a very modern and unique house. This is a three level house. The first level is a daylight basement with two bedrooms, a bathroom, recreation room and a mechanical room. The main floor has the kitchen, living room, dining area, den and a powder room. On the top floor you will find the master bedroom suite, another bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. I put the curved wall around the den and powder room so that the kitchen would be more open to the living room and the great view. The countertops in the kitchen are black concrete with stainless steel tile backsplashes. The hood over the stove is an antique barrel complete with the faucet that was screwed into the barrel. We cut the barrel in half and modified it for the fan and vent then had it zinc plated. The island has a curved concrete top with a raised eating bar we made out of quarter inch steel plate. The eating bar is shaped like a crescent moon. It is supported with stainless steel legs welded on the back of the curve. For the finish we ground the top and had clear powder coating applied. The main floor is bamboo except the powder room which is tile. The den has glass double doors going in to it. The stair stringers are steel stair channel ground and clear coated. The stair treads are made out of glulams with clear finish. We glued two by fours together for the post on the stairs so they would match the treads and other glulam posts in the house. We ran stainless steel cable through the posts. There are exposed beams and heat ducts on the main floor. The master suite has a balcony with a spectacular view, a walk-in closet and a unique L shaped bathroom with a soaking tub with a view. There is also a two person shower with two shower heads and controls. There is slate on the floors, backsplash, tub deck and shower. There are a lot of modern electrical and lighting fixtures in this house. I made the outside rails out of two inch steel tubes with stainless steel cables.
