Schell Wheeler house owned by mountain guide Scott Schell and Margaret Wheeler, the house was designed by Johnston Architects PLLC and for the construction handled by by Tall Tree Construction. Their site in the foothills above Snoqualmie is not far from work. The Schell Wheeler house will soon receive a LEED Silver certification. Blow-down trees from storms provided the logs that were milled into siding, fascias and trim. A ground source heat pump, supplemented by solar water preheating supplies energy to the house. Other strategies are implemented throughout the house, but the overall character of the two buildings completes the goal of sustainability: the complex is extremely livable within its environment. Even on a grey and rainy day this forest retreat is filled with light. Visit Johnston Architects PLLC for more information.
