The home sits on about 40-acres on the south side of the Clearwater River Canyon near Lewiston, Idaho.
Talk about privacy … and views!
The house, er, houses, cover roughly 2,200 square feet divided into two buildings: “the barracks” sits in a ravine along a seasonal stream, and “the study house” stands on a crest where an Idaho grass and fescue slope meets a Ponderosa pine forest about 300 feet above the Clearwater River.
The west side of the frame provides access for window washing and support for removable perforated sliding panels, for shading and protection against the wind. On the east side, the frame admits decks and a porch with an outside shower. The operative windows placed strategically on the four sides of the study house allow ventilation of the updraft, since the summer temperatures in the canyon often reach more than 100 degrees.
The house is made for folks to getaway, and to enjoy the views on every level as the house was designed to climb down the hill and take in all the sights.
Count me in.
