The owners built their original home in 1977 on Cedar Slope, a 13-acre retreat nestled in the Carnation Valley. When the couple decided to completely rebuild their home, they chose a bungalow style epitomized by the original Craftsman bungalow, the 1908 Gamble House in California designed by Greene and Greene Architects. By the time their extensive remodel was finished in 1999, the only remaining sections of the original structure were some rough framing and the foundation. S.M. Stemper Architects designed the intricate detailing for the home’s interior and exterior, focusing on rich, warm woods and hand-crafted fixtures and furnishings typical of the Craftsman period. The home was featured in the 1999 Seattle Times/Pacific Northwest Magazine Fall Home Design Issue.
