The Sunset Lake Tahoe Idea House takes its design cues from the breathtaking scenery that surrounds it
Thomas J. Story
Vaulted ceilings of reclaimed fir decking and beams add spaciousness while still feeling intimate; the board-formed concrete walls are surrounded by warm wood on the floor, ceiling, and window trim.
A chunky mantel of reclaimed, hand-hewn Southern yellow pine echoes the concrete’s pressed-wood texture. The asymmetrical placement of the mantelpiece and pendant lights balances the equally offset wall.
