Wooden House Designs & Ideas
A necessity for every beach house is an outdoor shower. Corrugated steel clads the walls of this outdoor shower to create an industrial outdoor feature. Located under the main deck, this outdoor shower provides home owners with a great space to rinse off after a day on the sandy beach and prevents sand from being tracked inside.

The modern farmhouse porch set the tone for the open concept swimming pool and outdoor living space. A gourmet kitchen and custom stone fireplace built into the side of home create a year-round gathering area and the clean, simple lines of the expansive rectangular pool allow the home’s architecture to take center stage.

- Completed: 2005 - Project Location: Seattle, WA - Project Size: 3,071 SF - Project Cost: $276/SF - Photographer: William Wright A new beach house for a family of four on Puget Sound waterfront in West Seattle features an open, carefully day lit interior in a very compact shell. Sited on a forty-foot wide lot and located on the foundations of an old beach cottage, the Beach Drive Residence includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms, open living and reading spaces, and a high play room. A "pavilion" courtyard shared with the southern neighbor centers the entry side of the house. A rocky Puget Sound beach with views of Blake, Vashon, and Bainbridge Islands are the focus of the west side of this house. The openness to the beach and salt water guided the process of the design and selection of materials and finishes. A concern for the permanence and maintenance of the house led to a careful selection of ground-face concrete block, natural concrete floors, and metal windows and door systems and to the raising of the house on a solid base formed of stepping concrete terraces. The relaxed, playful environs led to experimentation with forms, fixtures, and materials.

View of the house from the driveway. Natural stone wall separates the house from the driveway area. Grassy meadow plants and tailored boxwood hint to the viewer that the rest of the property will be an integration of these two landscapes. Large floor to ceiling windows in the house provide access to the stunning views of the ocean and meadows.
