Design Approach/Narrative: Provide a lakeside mountain retreat for a young San Francisco couple not looking for the ubiquitous “bear, fish, moose motif.” Economically addresses inherent site challenges including a 30 degree down dipping volcanic tuff, two access easements traversing the property, a 100 lb/ft 2 snow load, a 100 ft wide x 215 ft deep property with a 115 ft drop and a continuous 35 ft height limit. Take full advantage of the magnificent lakefront vista of Mt. Lassen (a dormant volcano at the southern tip of the Cascade Mtn. Range ) across Lake Almanor .
