Lafayette, Oregon – Abbey

TrappistExt118-h

This abbey is situated in some of western Oregon’s beautiful wine country.  The architect wanted to bring that rural feel into the sanctuary through multiple custom window units culminating in a large window wall feature with sloped glass at the altar.  Overhead, and centered in the room, is a cupola/lantern, and surrounding it are four ridge skylights.  (See More →)

A glazed patio cover achieves the goal of protection from weather while also permitting natural light to penetrate the home.  In this project the beams were painted to complement the house trim and windows.  In most situations where beams are exposed to moist outdoor air, cedar beams are preferable to (See More →)

Westview’s laminated columns replaced all the steel that was originally designed into this wall.  The resulting window wall provides a maximum of glass to view the rural scene.  In new construction projects, the beams are installed in coordination with the builder’s framing schedule, and the glass is installed later in the process.  Westview’s (See More →)

Weed, California – Spa

CA, Hip Wetzel, Lake Shasta

This hipped sunroom deals with humidity issues by means of operable skylights and several awning windows.  We generally suggest use of cedar beams in projects where the wood will be exposed to either outside air or moisture from a pool/hot tub or plants.  The exterior pictures show how well the sunroom blends in with the overall (See More →)
