Yamhill County Home 1

Completed: 1998

Project Highlights:

  • » Marcia A. Mikesh Architect designed this new home in the Craftsman style to take advantage of the spectacular views and passive solar orientation.
  • » With nearly continuous windows wrapping around the front of the house, structural design for structural resistance to the strong winds entailed complexities uncommon in most wood frame home construction.
  • » Marcia A. Mikesh Architect Inc. designed porches and mudroom to provide transition from the exterior to interior of the house.
