These clients wanted to build a smaller home so that maintenance and upkeep were not a problem. Also, they wanted to consider Aging-In-Place so we needed to keep the amenities on first floor. But the lot selected has a large grade change from the front to the rear.
This grade difference was an interesting monkey to wrestle during the design phase. It did require a full, walk-out basement.
The home is a 1 1/2 story wood structure with a full basement. The master suite and a guest bedroom are on first floor, with a loft and third bedroom on the second floor.
There is a beautiful view to the rear of the house, and we maximized that view with many windows on the rear elevation.
On the outside, there is a reasonable deck, with stairs that lead to an inviting patio.
