South Seattle Longhouse Home

We expect construction to start any day on Cardinal Architecture’s third project with EM Wolfe Construction. Inspired by the longhouse traditions of the client’s Native American and Nordic heritage, this house takes advantage of its long, downhill site with sweeping views from Mount Rainier to downtown Seattle. There is a lower level attached dwelling unit for extended family members and a greenhouse on the south side to provide a year-round supply of fresh fruits and vegetables. Solar panels and an extensive rainwater collection system accommodate most of the power and water needs. Stay tuned for updates as construction begins on this exciting new home!
