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.

“They cared about our vision on our new home and went the extra mile to meet our expectations. They built our house in 2017 and have been standing behind their work, even years later.”

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.

What our Clients are Saying

“We felt our ideas were listened to, incorporated, and enhanced in the final plans. Elizabeth did a nice job adding architectural interest with the arch above the stove and continuing that feature in the new opening connecting the living room to dining space. Eliminating the wall between dining room & kitchen allowed for a much better flow addressing our desire for a more spacious-looking interior without adding additional space. The hot tub cover is a special feature that enhances our ability to use it daily. And creating a space for the washer/dryer in the house instead of the garage was a real win. ”

“There's a couple of unique features, certainly the stairway; That's really an organizing principle when you come into the house. When you come into the house, you see the stairs and you see right out to that super view. I think taking advantage of the view, and the way it functions and flows, I'd put it up there as one of the best projects I've done.”
