Chuckanut Ridge Residence

April 7th, 2011

The house was created by Prentiss Architects and is situated on a ridge near Chuckanut Mountain in Washington—strange name isn’t it? The reason for building in this location is that the narrow ridge reveals great views of the San Juan Islands and the Skagit Valley.

I’ve had the opportunity to check out photovoltaic solar panels in the past and in my opinion they are an amazing opportunity to provide a somewhat sustainable energy solution. This house utilizes a number of the same photovoltaic panels. Since well water is in short supply, water is collected from roof runoff, purified and then stored in tanks under the house.
