Nestled in a historic mining area in Washington, a modern, energy-efficient house blends modern architecture with reclaimed rustic materials.

Completed for an approximate cost of $2,000,000, the modern, net-zero home features 3,835 square feet and is located in the heart of Suncadia’s master-planned community.

After completing work on Ed and Joanne Ellis’ primary residence in Bainbridge Island—the first LEED Platinum residence in Washington—Coates Design Architects was called upon again by the couple to design their legacy vacation home, this time on a site an hour east of Seattle in the Cascade Mountains.

To recall the region's past as a historic mining town, a rustic palette of mostly natural materials were applied to the home, including stone, Cor-ten steel, and reclaimed barn wood with modern detailing.

As with the first commission, the clients envisioned the new single-family house—named Tumble Creek Cabin—with modern and sustainable design sensibilities. 



Yet, unlike the Bainbridge Island property, the extreme climate in Cle Elum proved a greater challenge when it came to creating a comfortable environment without the use of traditional heating and cooling systems. 

Completed for an approximate cost of $2,000,000, the modern, net-zero home features 3,835 square feet and is located in the heart of Suncadia’s master-planned community.
