Secret Island Residence

September 14th, 2010









Miller Hull designed this secret dream home to become one with nature. The trees shadowing around the house are 75-100 foot tall Douglas Firs. Leaving uninterrupted westward views of the Puget sound and Olympic Mountains.

It’s really nice to see that the lumber used in the house was actually salvaged from a shipwreck in 1921. It was planed into large 19″ x 19″ beams that formed the main living rooms. Each section of the house was specifically designed for the needs of the room. To top all of it off, there is a wooden trestle elevated 14 feet off of the ground that goes back into the forest. At the end of the trestle there is a hot tub on a platform.

  3. GIEF! Want this house now.

    This house is not too dissimilar to many other neat houses I’ve seen, but this one has got something that just makes it special.

    Mat, I would but I’m afraid splitzies on this house is still probably a few million dollars…

  5. This is a really beautiful house. The wood design that goes into almost every part of the house proves it has it’s own identity. Very very nice!
