Contemporary Modern Home
Shinta and Taifo asked us to build Shinta's design of a contemporary modern home with Japanese influences. In addition to seeking out a contractor with experience and a reputation for quality, Shinta and Taifo were also interested in an energy efficient home. On this home, we installed R23 fiberglass BIBS insulation in the walls, R49 in the ceiling, and R38 in the floor, and hours and hours of air sealing. We also installed a 96% efficient furnace, U.30 or better windows and much more.
Durable Modern Siding
This picture, caught at sunrise, highlights the contrast of materials that is hallmark to the contemporary modern home. Shinta Muljani, who designed her own home, had a vision of stone cladding, modern siding panels, and horizontal wood working in harmony together.
Wood and Aluminum Cable Railing
It took exceptional craftsmanship and planning to build this wood and cable railing. The principal support posts extend up to 16" below the floor to provide additional stability and prevent the handrail from developing a future wobble. The top is stained, lacquered hemlock.
A floor to ceiling, stacked stone veneer fireplace and cable rail bridge tie this room together. The cabinet and shelf are custom walnut. The flooring is Cronin, chocolate stained birch.
A simple design highlights exceptional carpentry and gorgeous cherry. We built a large sand-filtered planting area inside the concrete deck which is just visible in this photo. These Shoji doors will open to a view of a Japanese themed garden the owners intend to grow in the planting area.
