A locally-sourced, painted wood is the main material used to clad this home’s exterior. There are also structural insulated panels in this project, the kind of panels that are often used for residential and light commercial construction. The materials are manufactured under factory-controlled conditions so they fit any building design perfectly.

The result of this project is a home with a strong, energy-efficient, and cost-effective system. The custom lighting and decorative steel columns are made specially by Alchemy Architects for this home. The interior is warm thanks to the wood materials.
