    The home was heavily damaged by a fire that started on a lower level, causing damage to about 70% of the residence.

Interesting challenges included custom milling of baseboards and casings, designing router bits to custom mill northern spruce 2x6 roof decking (which was also the ceiling), finding and delivering a 64’ spruce tree to be milled for the main truss support (the tree was found in Manitoba, cut and helicoptered to Seattle for milling and Kiln drying, then shipped to us at the job site)
