room with a view

We are kind of obsessed with the Eames house and when it came time to build an addition on our house to accommodate for new members of the family, we knew it had to somehow incorporate elements of the fantastic Eames living room.

Eames House aka Case Study House #8

Living way up north of 60 meant having to make some design compromises. R factor is kind of a big deal when winter lasts nigh on 6 months and temperatures routinely dip down into the -30s centigrade. We had to settle for less than a whole wall of windows and go with triple pane vinyl  over  industrial metal frames. It's still evolving with trim and lighting to come, but now that we're in in and enjoying the space, I'm pretty happy with our little homage. I just never get tired of this view.
