ORCHARD WAY


This is a West Coast Contemporary custom home created with the unique design flare of architect Don Stuart.  Large over hanging rooflines, fir windows, black slate stone and other natural building material all embody the organic architectural philosophy inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright designs and brought back to life in exquisite fashion.

DESIGNBUILDLIVEAWARDSTESTIMONIAL

This project required a delicate hand in combining a sun-soaked dream home with the need to remain fully accessible. The client originally envisioned a 4000 sq. ft. rancher, but we knew that this project would benefit from a more unique approach. Highly sought-after architect Don Stuart took 8 months and 162 pages of meticulously hand-drawn schematics to design the perfect home for our clients.

This amazing project features:

Mechanical & Electrical

  • Geothermal heating
  • Solar panel water heating (hot tub & pool)

Structural

  • Lower level completely reinforced concrete with inverted slab beams
  • Wood frame main and upper floor
  • Truss roof

Exterior

  • Black slate
  • Clear fir windows & doors
  • Clear fir trim, soffits and moldings
  • Infinity edge lipless pool

Interior Finishes

  • Brazilian cherry hardwood
  • Limestone bathrooms, granite kitchen counter tops,
  • 3 storey elevator

We addressed the accessibility needs of our client by installing a residential elevator, keeping the full three-story home entirely within reach.

The client’s grandchildren frequently visit, so the home was designed with every window facing the pool to ensure they’re constantly supervised. This had the added benefit of providing every single room with a jaw-dropping ocean view and plenty of sun.

Todd Best is a builder with great integrity. He puts the wishes and budgets of the owner on the forefront. Our house had a great deal of complicated cement work; steel framed and fine natural wood finishes and all was handled very smooth with no setbacks what so ever.

His crews were timely and his foreman arrived 1 hour early to organize the day. No one ever missed work and they were continuously there throughout the time it took to construct our home.

They kept a meticulous job site, arranged for sub trades to be there on time so the job flowed smoothly. All the sub-trades were of high quality and were able to take on all tasks given to them.

Billings were regular and understandable. They have an organized office staff. I am sure any one contacting Best Builders would be more than satisfied with the product they receive.
