From Drawing Board to Construction

We spend so much time building a house on the drawing board, it is a delight to watch a home be transformed from a design to a living structure.

We designed this home for an empty nest couple who wanted a universal design to age-in-place after downsizing from a bigger home.

The 1,300 sf main floor features wide hallways and a master bedroom. The 1,078 sf second floor includes two guest bedrooms. Above the single car garage is a 300 sf studio apartment with a kitchenette and bathroom, designed with a future caretaker in mind.

The home is being built on a less than quarter acre lot within walking distance of downtown. Proximity to downtown allows the homeowners to take advantage of all downtown services without a vehicle.

On the Cover of Sunset Magazine!

Sunset Magazine October Coveroctober-2013BC&J Architecture was selected to design the 2013 Sunset Magazine Idea House at the magazine’s first ever Idea Town: Seabrook  – a new town on the coast of Washington State, and we made the coveted cover!

Sunset Magazine actually celebrated TWO Idea Houses for the first time ever and BC&J Architecture modified a Wavewatcher from our Perfect Little House Company collection  http://www.perfectlittlehouse.com/ to compliment the red, three-story, modern seaside cottage design.  The smaller, two-story Wavewatcher was altered by parent company BC&J Architecture to include a master-down and a studio/ garage entry to the shared courtyard.

Both houses are currently available to tour through October 27th, Friday through Sunday. Tickets are $17, portion of the proceeds benefits the Seabrook Community Foundation. http://www.seabrookwa.com/

Westsound Home & Garden

A constricted waterfront lot. Complicated drain field regulations. Dreams of an elegant yet budget-conscious home. Hardly a job for the average architect.
