Springwater Farmhouse

project

Located on a Christmas tree farm, this new house has two wings that accommodate multiple uses. The eastern side is home to the open living, dining, and kitchen area, with a primary suite above, all of which have expansive glazing with views of Mt Hood. Contained in a bump out with windows on three sides and a vaulted ceiling, the dining area is a celebrated space for family gatherings. A patio courtyard accessed from the living area also looks to Mt Hood and the adjacent tree farm.

The western wing accommodates service spaces and additional bedrooms. A spacious home office projects off the back of the structure, allowing for windows that also capture the stunning mountain view. A wide front porch creates a welcoming entry and a covered connection to the detached garage. Running parallel to the porch, a mudroom connects to the entry Foyer and the garage and is an essential space on a working farm.

High performance detailing, construction, and mechanical systems result in a home that is durable, healthy, and energy efficient. A solar array placed on the roof of an adjacent barn coupled with battery storage provides ample power for the home to be net zero in its energy use, and resilient during power outages.

Thank you for the beautiful house you designed - and for the time and energy and tenacity you have demonstrated to make sure this house exceeds expectations!
