Tsunami ResidenceCharter’s scheduling and coordination skills were put to the test during construction of this 9,500 SF lakefront home and garage.
The site is located on a steep slope and access was limited to a narrow driveway, requiring careful planning and monitoring of equipment and material delivery.
The home features a soaring “butterfly” roof supported by Douglas fir timber framing. The large timbers are connected with blind fasteners, resulting in seamless woodworking with no visible nails or bolts. The giant, one-of-a-kind roof timbers required extreme care during construction, requiring Charter to take extra steps to protect the material from the weather.
