Lake Chelan Residence
Lake Chelan, WA | Architect: Bernie Baker Architects

Quantum Consulting Engineers performed structural design for this 2,800 SF  wood-framed cabin located on a steeply sloping waterfront site on the west edge of Lake Chelan.  The cabin is composed of a tall 2-story North wing and 2-story plus loft South wing that are connected by a central entry stair and corridors enclosure accessible from South Lakeshore Road above to the West.  The 1st Floor contains a large deck overlooking the lake that is nestled between the two wings.  

Structural design features for the cabin include tall concrete retaining walls with large footings that allow for two stories of soil slope day-lighting toward the lakefront, exposed heavy timber frames with steel rod diagonal cross bracing located at the East perimeter wall base and central tower, and interior 2nd Floor framing consisting of 3x lock-deck supported by steel WT beams and glu-lam girders that are exposed to the 1st Floor.  Architectural features include board and batten exterior siding, stone veneer, and cor-ten metal upper level siding and roofing for the gable shaped roof areas and dormers.

This project was recently featured in Pacific Northwest Magazine.
