Barcus Residence

Location: Olympia, Washington
Services Provided: Design, Construction Drawings & Construction Administration 

This modern-day craftsman house is located on Capitol Blvd, a few blocks down from the state capitol building in Olympia, Washington. The owner requested that we provide a “craftsman style” residence of approximately 1,800 square feet with a partial basement apartment. As the residence is located in a historic district, we were required to meet certain criteria and be reviewed by the historical committee. Our goal was to design a new residence that would fit in nicely with the other historical homes in the are. To that end, the design includes exposed rafter tails, spacious front porch, wood detailing, and double hung windows.
