Lake Whatcom Residence

This home started as a rustic lake cabin on a steep slope with a great view. It has evolved into a contemporary space for daily life on the lake, and elegant entertaining on the deck.

The entry opens into the main floor and open air space concept. Large windows on the lakeside look beyond the walls of the house.

The steep slope provides an opportunity for a dramatic overhang, and covered deck. The deck has been outfitted with a professional grilling station, within a few steps of the kitchen. The outdoor gas fireplace keeps company warm and invites guests into the hot tub.

Maximum daylight is accessed by using large windows on the lake side of the home, combined with glass railing along the deck. Upon entering the home, one can see all the way through walls and the deck, out  onto the lake.
