Pole Cottage: Kitchen & Addition


After getting to know her cottage in the woods on San Juan Island, the client decided she would like some more space for entertaining. AKH designed a 320 square foot addition that works seamlessly with the existing house. Construction will be complete at the end of 2013.

At D+A Studio, we adapted one of our stock home plans for the client’s needs to create the semi-custom main house. She then used another stock home plan for her garage and 694 square foot, one bedroom Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) above. Last year, she threw an open house for all involved in the construction process.

The client’s dream kitchen included Lumicor Architectural Resin Panels for the back splash. AKH worked closely with the company on this new type of installation for their Cherry Woodribbon panel.
