Materials & Customization

Standard is premium but there are many options to customize any ADU.

 
 

 

Standard Materials

Timber

Timber framing is responsibly sourced and steel components are manufactured locally.

We clad our finely tuned structures with aesthetically beautiful Western cedar, which ranges in color from pale neutral, grey, coffee to black, like Japanese Shou sugi ban.


Windows

Double-glazed wood and aluminum clad windows are made for the Pacific Northwest.

We use architectural shingles, metal and flat roofs that integrate UV- and heat resistant membranes. Combined with rigid and closed-cell insulation, these systems reduce energy consumption and have a longer lifespan than other roofing materials.

Smooth ‘Level 5’ drywall gives the finished interior walls a luxurious matte texture

‘Trimless’ minimalist LED lighting and smart thermostat controls reduce energy waste and utility bills


Weatherization

Rain screens, modern building skins, wraps and liquid-applied flashing systems, in combination with metal flashing components and windows with nail fins are superior to traditional systems of weatherization.
