Modern Mountain House Design Advice Needed!

Melissa Sanborn
last month

Hello! We have a new home build design project underway on a 5 acre parcel in Hood River County. We have challenges with water (we're near the wetlands) and it's a narrow building site so need to keep the house around 24' wide and think about cost (we sure hope we're under $850k for this build otherwise we'll have to start shrinking the footprint).

We're trying to maximize the Mt Hood view and also keep in mind the summer heat. It's been a challenge placing the interior staircase, powder room, primary bed/bath, etc and utilize the downstairs for storage and workout space and a larger entryway to shed wet gear and dry off dirty dogs. We think it would be interesting to get some feedback here to help us figure out what we might be overlooking. Appreciate the community's advice!
