Hare House Phase 2 Construction Photos

New Hare House Phase 2 Construction Photos recently taken on a beautiful day in Friday Harbor. We are both designer and general contractor for the main house.

View from Harrison Street. The entry bridge provides access to the folly. The folly is clad with corten steel and clear cedar siding. 

The cantilevered balcony bring the living area outside, into the trees and suspended above the street. A full wall of glass offers views of the harbor and Mount Baker. 

See more photos and track the progress of the Hare House: Phase 2 on Facebook.

The Hare House cluster includes a Guest House with separate office, Main House and Folly structure on a challenging site in Friday Harbor. Driving forces of the design included the incredible views of Mount Baker and the desire to create a sustainable space for a couple permanently relocating to the island.

The clients want a flexible home that is cozy for the two of them yet opens to accommodate the extended family. Features of both the Main and Guest House include in-floor hydronic heat, advanced framing, rainscreen siding applications, permeable pavers, grasscrete parking areas, Watersense certified plumbing fixtures, Energy Star appliances and an elevator for aging in place.  The house is in the process of several sustainable third party certifications such as Built Green, Watersense, Builders Challenge and Energy Star.
