Carlson Vacation Residence


Built on the south shore of Lake Wenatchee, this new vacation home provides a comfortable retreat for a family of four. The setting is a steep wooded hillside bordering the lake. A lasting standing seam metal roof, low maintenance vinyl windows, and locally harvested wood siding all contribute to this environmentally responsive design. Located in the northeastern reaches of the Cascade Mountains, this design carefully considers the heavy snow conditions that occur in this region. Future plans call for a full width deck and stairs that step downward towards the lake.

The interior spaces of this tradition style vacation house are arranged around a centrally located, two story high, Great Room space. The second floor overlooks the Great Room and outward towards the lake. The exterior windows were carefully planned to take advantage of the spectacular views of the lake and the Cascade mountains as viewed from both floor levels.

The building's walls and roof is framed entirely with a super energy efficient Structural Insulated Panel System (SIPS) which is a prefabricated system made from rigid foam sandwiched between plywood panels.
