  • 30-degree slope and oak forest abutting the city of Hood River

To develop the site without removing the oak forest that serves as the backdrop to the city

To preserve the trees, we worked with the planning commission to obtain a waiver from set-back requirements so that we could build on the property line. We then built four 3,000-square-foot single-family homes using advanced cable-braced post foundation technology to minimize excavation and ground disturbance. Each house stands at tree-top level in the forest and is linked to the main road by a bridge.
