Have a look at this home located at the base of Squak Mountainin, Washington, combining sustainable materials and features with the ultimate in modern living! Envisioned by Steve Moe Design, the modern cottage accommodates three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a home office and a media room. Its exterior finishes in stone and wood make the building integrate well in its unspoiled surroundings, while the glass piercings and generously-sized deck blur indoor-outdoor boundaries.
The expansive deck offers spectacular views of Mt. Rainier and is a neat extension for the main living space. Wooden stairs, pillars and exposed beams give the interiors a genuine mountain cottage feel. According to the architects, radiant heated concrete floors can be found throughout the lower level. Stone is a key element indoors as well, highlighted through an accent wall behind the sofa. The furniture and decorations were reduced to a minimum, as if to direct focus towards the outdoors.
