Hood River Custom Home
Hidden among the trees in Hood River’s west side, this custom home is in the first stages of construction. A break in the winter weather allowed for excavation, grading, and the stemwalls to be poured and Green Home is actively framing the floors and walls. The house was designed to take advantage of the natural features of the site while providing a courtyard in its center. The project required approval from the Gorge National Scenic Commission which required its exterior to maintain certain vernacular characteristics. The home will feature a live roof, a rainwater catchment system, advanced framing and energy-efficient insulation.
