This Mid-Century house was published in the book “Dream Homes of Pacific Northwest,” and was part of a New York Times “Home and Garden” article on bathrooms.


Previously a non-distinct ranch house, it was completely renovated to meet the needs of a growing family. The central roof was raised to admit generous overhead light to the kitchen and living spaces. New metal windows were enlarged and repositioned to capture distant views. Interior finishes were replaced, and the mechanical system revised to provide radiantly heated floors.
