This 4000 square foot second home situated in the Yamhill Valley Wine Country serves as a beautiful second home for an active couple – complete with a bike barn and separate accommodations for guests, this is a perfect escape for weekend bike tours and wine tastings with friends and family. The challenge presented by this project was maximizing natural light in the home, which is in a valley. We decided to work with the sun, creating a traditional u-shaped home with the rooms arranged to follow the sun throughout the day. We placed the master suite in the East, bathing it in sunlight in the morning, and the kitchen, dining, and hearth in the West to light living spaces in the afternoon and evening. We love finding innovative solutions to perfect our custom homes for the client.
