december's featured project / by Claire Grotz

A renovation to an existing house overlooking Cle Elum Lake, is taking place near Ronald, WA. The current design of the roof results in as much as 15 feet of snow and ice cascading onto the clients' deck - this is the main reason for the project, as this problematic roof design resulted in half of the original metal roofing peeling off. The project proposes a revised roof design that will allow snow to slide off to an out-of-the-way location and provide covered outdoor areas. It also involves a lower-level addition of a wine storage area for 750-1000 bottles and a tasting area underneath a new deck and adjacent to new stone or concrete patios.
