Parkallen House

This project replaces a house whose foundation failed badly with drying of the clay layer below the footing in the 2009 drought. The site is a 50 foot wide lot mid-block in a sixty year old neighbourhood. The house has 12" R-40 walls, an open main floor plan, and many windows to allow solar heating in winter. The master suite has a high sloped ceiling and clerestory windows to the south. There is a second bedroom and a studio space at the 2nd level and two more bedrooms in the basement.
