For hobbyists, the garage features an industrial gas heater, perfect for year-round use as a workshop. Experience the perfect blend of luxury and functionality in this meticulously designed Tahoe Donner residence. Seated at the base of forested hills in Tahoe Donner, California, the modern mountain home was designed in response to abundant natural light and subtly integrate environmentally friendly building practices and technologies. Skinned with Cor-Ten panels, ledge stone, redwood, and cement fiber panels, the residence exists peacefully with its surroundings. A shed roof - designed to direct significant snowfall away from the public side of the house - achieves an eco-friendly quality with the utilization of a structurally insulated panel system. Through careful selection of materials and respectful use of the landscape, modern sensibilities of clean lines are blended with warmth and light. Subtly suspended in the central Sierra Nevada forest canopy, floating planes and corner glass spaces coexist with tree limbs as the residence strides into the landscape. Five vertical plaster towers and steel beams facilitate a hefty snow load and address the sleepy sloping lot. Combined with redwood and glass infill, the structure defines a delicate vocabulary that enhances the indoor-outdoor fusion. "Our goal was to build a sustainable house that wasn't going to consume a lot of energy for the next 50 x 100 years" says Craig and Doreen owners of this modern aesthetic home appropriate for the Sierra. The mixture of contemporary architecture and green building techniques set in an alpine environment is harmonious and striking. Sitting in the great room, bathed in soft sunlight pouring through two-story window walls, the sellers are appreciative of the final result "This room is just flooded with light. I can't believe we live in something so beautiful" Fantastic wine cellar that keeps the wine at an even and consistent temperature! 5th bedroom is currently used as an office. Home was featured in Mountain Living as well as Tahoe Quarterly in 2010.
