Idaho Outdoor Paradise

Located outside of beautiful McCall, Idaho, this residence is entirely surrounded by an outdoor lover’s paradise. Situated in a subdivision known for its unobstructed views of Payette Lake, the home is in close range of the numerous ski resorts, natural hot springs, rivers, and lakes that provide the region with a multitude of adventures.

The modern design of this home embraces the idea of form follows function by the elimination of unnecessary embellishments. Through simplicity, clarity, and clear material integrity, as well as a strong sense of asymmetrical balance, the structure has a feeling of liveliness and movement. Neutral, earthy tones flow from the exterior of the home to the interior, where an open floor plan makes use of as few walls as possible. Uncluttered spaces allow the clean lines of the design to pull attention towards large expanses of windows that create a true feeling of integrated interior and exterior spaces.

Cedar Charwood, a brand of fireproof shiplap siding, is combined with natural stone, steel cladding details, and a dark metal standing seam shed-style roof to create various layers and directions in both material and massing. The design’s dedication to the idea that form follows function is also seen in the massive multi-level outdoor spaces that include a hot tub, barbeque, and fire pit. By providing a multitude of different interior and exterior spaces that can accommodate many different uses ensures that this home will be functional and beautiful for many years to come.

The W7 series of windows and doors were selected in this project both for the high performance of the products, the beauty of natural wood interiors, and the durability of aluminum-clad exteriors. The stunning clear-stained pine windows make use of concealed hinges, which not only deliver a clean aesthetic but provide continuous gaskets around the sash helping to create a better seal against the weather outside. The robust hardware is paired with stainless steel premium handles to ensure smooth operation and timeless style for years to come.
