A Solid, Stable Home Has A Watery Foundation

The story of the three little pigs is a cautionary story: it is designed to instruct. Don’t build your home on sand or from straw or the big bad wolf will blow it down. No word though about not building your house on water. But this stable and centered home by Seattle’s Vandeventer + Carlander Architects is rock solid.

This home on Seattle’s Lake Huron makes it seem as if we always lived on water. It’s solid and stable, and centered, and calming.

Usually watery homes are a little more Bohemian than this. Sausalito in California was first created by hippies in the 1970’s, and it looks it.

Of course, the ocean can get ugly, but a calm lake like Lake Huron seems like an ideal home site.  Certainly the water views are unsurpassed.

The detailing is also very durable, solid and serious. Typical maritime construction details abound.

    That would be "Lake Union". No idea where Lake Huron is but it's not in Seattle…
