Muljani Contemporary Modern Home

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.

Project Details

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.

Fireplace

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.

Shoji Screens

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.

“My experience with them was top notch. They're conscientious. Christianson himself, who runs the show, doesn't just turn his workers loose and then pick the check up at the end of the month. He is involved in the process. He's also very personable.”

Niels Nielsen, Peoria Road

“Everyone was a delight to work with. GREAT advice on all issues. 100% commitment to top quality work and materials. Keep doing the same thing! We joke that we miss you guys and wish we had another project.”
