Home #1 - Stone Bridge Homes NW
Inspired by the simple gabled farm building in the area, the house and garage of the Bluff House were designed and organized to create a protected and private outdoor courtyard and living space. Here, traditional and contemporary styles converge into a graceful, enduring design that is both relaxed and distinctive. Efficiently utilizing 2700 finished square feet of living space, the home features 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, an expansive kitchen/great room, a large mud room and an office. In addition, a 500 square foot courtyard connects the home to a spacious 1100 square foot detached garage. The main living spaces and master suite are oriented facing towards the courtyard to provide a seamless indoor/outdoor flow. The intent is to take advantage of natural daylighting, provide views to Vancouver Lake and the Columbia River, and capture breezes on the bluff coming off of the lake in the summer. This spacious, sheltered courtyard was designed to provide optimal year-round outdoor living. The covered IPE Brazilian Hardwood deck enhances and expands the serviceable living space. Meanwhile, the built-in grill station with sink and refrigerator, the flat screen TV, overhead gas heaters and fire pit provide an appealing level of comfort and utility. Moving though the house, the spaces of the home transition from the more public living spaces near the street and entry to the more private bedroom wing at the back of the site. The interior material palette was designed to be timeless and restrained with dark walnut floors in the living spaces and bedrooms, elegant walnut cabinets, stone tile and full height glass shower walls in the bathrooms.

A strong sense of family and wanting to set their own pace in life without being governed by tradition was the inspiration behind this new Home. Coming from a Culinary Background, this family enjoys great Food, excellent Wine and an entertaining lifestyle. Welcome to the Finleigh. A newer style transitional home, breaking the typical “New Home” mold. The Exterior of this home boasts some traditional elements that you would typically find in a NW Craftsman Style Design. A steeper, more masculine 12/12 roof pitch, gorgeous dormers, a roof combination of gables and hips, a sprawling 3 car garage, massive amounts of stone and traditional siding, extend a comfortable welcoming hand to all. Spreading out luxuriously from the large, rectangular foyer, you feel welcomed by the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional elements throughout the home. From the moment you step through the double knotty alder doors, into the extra wide entry way, you feel the openness and warmth of an entertainment inspired home. A massive 2 story great room surrounded by windows overlooking the green space, along with the large 12’ wide bi-folding glass doors, open to the covered outdoor living area; brings the outside in, making it feel as if it’s an extension of your living space. Step outside and instantly you’re in heaven, with a wood fired pizza oven fired and ready on one side and the beautiful view of the lake with the privacy of the surrounding green space on the other. Immediately you feel yourself begin to relax and leave the world of a fast past, service oriented lifestyle behind submersing yourself deeper into your seat while enjoying the aroma of the wood fired pizza oven and the crackling sound of the wood fire pit below. For a few moments, you have forgotten that you are actually this close to town and in the middle of a subdivision. Back inside, the massive kitchen, oversized island, Costco style pantry and the large open concept dining area, is truly an entertainers dream from first sight. It will comfortably entertain dozens of guests without the feeling of being cramped or congested. Meeting a newer trend of age in place living, and having the ability for aging guests or family to stay either short or long term, we have accommodated both. A luxurious and spacious main level master suite with an incredible sized master bath and closet, along with a main floor guest Suite make life easy both today and well into the future. Today’s busy lifestyle’s are demanding and ensure the need to spend some time in the warm and cozy Den located close to the front door, to catch up on the latest news, pay a few bills or take the day and work from home all in the privacy of your own space.

Home #6 Cascade West Development
WHAT DO YOU do if you want an ultra-modern house with an ultra-traditional sense? That is the question that confronted Jeff and Natalie, two 40-something professionals that wanted to build a fun, unusual living space atop a lookout minutes away from where they like to shop and near the homes of friends. Their answer: The “something old, something new” home. The home looks like a photo from a catalog and that’s no mistake. This home is designed by Joni Vilhauer, owner of Modeo. From the street, the simple lines and traditional entrance help it to blend into its neighborhood. The front entranceway prepares you for the natural presentation of the home. “We wanted to create an open space, and do something really fun and interesting on the inside,” says the home’s designer, Joni Vilhauer. For this home, there is a mezzanine for the kids to do homework and snack. You’ll note unfinished concrete, giving an industrial feel yet much like within an art gallery or library. Huge glass windows offer impressive views in every direction. “It’s pleasant to be here,” say the owners. There is private space too. For Jeff, there is a place away from the main area of house that includes its own patio and utilizes the underground air tem- perature to keep the space comfortable. Like many men, he is interested in new technology, but requested the technology to be sustainable. The owners say the home is sealed so tight it is “almost too quiet” – and they can’t hear the birds outside. The home achieves a balance between the heat generated by the sun, its occupants and is equipped with a heat-recovery ventilator that brings in air from the outside. One of the homes most unique features includes a barn door to create a yesteryear feeling. There is also a staircase with stone and hardwood that sets the home apart from any other.
Home #7 Legacy Restoration

As you enter the foyer natural sunlight and warm hues greet you, drawing you into the great room complete with a 2-story fireplace. This magnificent fireplace serves as a backdrop leading in to the open kitchen which is sure to be the heart of the home. Prepare a meal on the gourmet appliances as your family and friends gather and converse around the large kitchen island or take it outside to the covered patio complete with a built in BBQ. Enjoy the view and a delicious meal in the dining room as you take in the warmth and glow from the two-sided fireplace. Descend to the secret wine cellar below the stairs as you savor a glass of your favorite vintage. After spending some time tempting your palate, head upstairs to retire to one of 2 luxurious master suites. As you climb the grand open staircase head in to the barrel vaulted theater room and enjoy the natural rustic feel of the wood ceiling inviting you to stay and watch a movie. Escape to the serene grand master suite and take a soak in the large tub or relax with a refreshing steam in the spacious tile shower. Lay back and enjoy as your day comes to an end and the warmth and glow of the fireplace resonate through the room. Stroll past the garden to gather around the custom fire pit below for storytelling or to catch the sunset in peace.
