All-Season Vacation Cabin

These homeowners are building a 1,405 sf Cutter near the Wenatchee River – outside of Leavenworth. Leavenworth, WA is a popular location to enjoy year-round activities. The post & beam cabin includes two bedrooms and a storage/sleeping loft, open kitchen with island / dining / great room, two baths, laundry room and a two-car garage with in-floor radiant heat. In addition to the wall of windows at the prow, the great room also includes a glue-lam, open riser stair system to the second level. A large 580 sf deck off the great room offers territorial views to watch the rafters up and down the river.

The homeowners modified our Cutter 1280 design.

Creekside Retirement Home

View property overlooking a rambling creek is the perfect setting to enjoy the retirement lifestyle. The homeowners meticulously planned and project managed a 696 sf Horizon View in eastern Washington. This home is built with our post & beam (stud framed) wall system. When completed, it will be sheathed with 1 x 8 cedar siding. 9’ triple store doors with triple picture windows over the top bring an abundance of natural light into the home and focus attention outside. This one-bedroom floor plan includes a walk-in closet, full-size kitchen, great room and laundry room. The 216 sf deck offers an overlook of the entire property.

The homeowners started with our Horizon View 600 design and enlarged it to fit their needs.

Country Setting Near Mt. Rainier

Construction is well underway for this Post and Beam 2,079 sf custom Citylights home. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room face a pastoral setting and mountain views. The 1,608 sf main level includes a master bedroom wing with walk-in-closet, open kitchen / dining / great room, extra large pantry and a laundry room with a dog wash area.

The second level (which overlooks the great room) includes a second bath and bedroom and a study. This homeowner built a large garage / shop prior to starting construction of the home. That structure makes a great storage area for windows, doors and miscellaneous hardware – while the home is being built. The homeowners will be using the shop to stain their 1 x 8 cedar siding boards.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

"An Extremely Positive Experience"

We have had the pleasure of knowing Mike and Judy Flanagan since 2001. We met at an Open House for their business, Cedar Homes of Washington. We were looking at cabin packages to build a retreat in the mountains for our family. Their openness, friendliness and willingness to help is genuine. We never felt any pressure to give a commitment. The fact that the home they live in is a product they built themselves from a kit is a positive statement that they know the design and build process - have been through it - and know first hand about long term maintenance, etc. for these type of structures.

The summer of 2004, we had a contractor build the shell of our cabin and it was an extremely positive experience. There have been minor issues that have come up during the building process, such as shortages for hardware. Mike and Judy have always promptly returned phone calls and remedied the situation in short order. We cannot think of a way that they could improve the way they conduct their business or improve their customer service.
