This project provided the opportunity to design a compact residence with a strict budget for the architects daughter Anna and her husband J.R. The site is steep, a challenge the architect welcomes and articulates with precision. Further the house was built by the architect along with his daughter and son-in-law. The roof of the garage becomes a deck replacing the traditional front porch of a house and commands a view of Mt.Hood to the east. Upon entering the Foyer you have the option of ascending a stair supported at the wall on one side and wire cables on the other to the bedrooms and communal spaces or descending to the recreation room below. At the top of the stairs one finds the main upper level of the house filled with light and space.
