Projects > Jackson Residence

Location: Pinyon Crest, CA
Construction: Straw Bale / Wood Post
Progress: Completed in 2006
 
Synopsis: The Jackson residence had two main design criteria: one, the home was to "tread lightly" on the site, preservation of the landscape and earth was of utmost importance. A step footing was used to move the foundation up the hill. And second, the home needed to be able to be resold. Standard bedrooms, a master suite, dining area, etc could not be left out. The house had to have the things that most families would want in a home.
