Home of the Week: Neave Lahontan Residence

Meet Truckee, California’s 2017 Best in American Living Awards Silver winner for Best Custom or Spec Home, 2,501-3,000 Square Feet, the Neave Lahontan Residence.

The owners wanted this home to appear as though each element was thoughtfully created from reclaimed or repurposed materials that were crafted by someone of many talents yet master of none.

The home features reclaimed, 1800s-era, red-wine barreled, redwood ceilings…

…varied wall heights throughout the home and a green roof with fescue grasses above the garage.

The home is a masterpiece of bespoke design elements that engaged the talents of many local contractors and artisans while incorporating sustainability, function and cost efficiency—all of which were driving forces behind the design and construction of the property.

Judges were impressed by this “very cool…great example of a modern cabin.”
