Inside and out, this sparkling renovation redefines coastal warmth and understated elegance. Shannon Baird of S Baird Design helped to guide this project from inception through fruition. Together with custom builder Tod Phillips, they completed an extensive remodel of a beachfront home in Manzanita Oregon that had been sadly neglected over several decades.
Resistance to extreme weather is of paramount importance to creating long-lasting structures that can withstand the elements. For this reason and more, the Climate-Shield Rain Screen System, with its marine grade aluminum components, was chosen to complete this sustainable façade. The Climate-Shield system is widely recognized by architects, designers and building professionals alike for its functionality and design simplicity. Builders especially appreciate the ease of installation, labor savings and strength of this remarkable vertical rain screen. According to Tod, “I really liked working with your system.”
Because Tod Phillips is an experienced and meticulous builder, numerous custom carpentry touches were incorporated into this project, including the vertical wood rainscreen itself and exceptional detailing around the windows and doors, fascia, soffits and sauna. A copper roof, downspouts and other architectural design features were also included in the design. The Ipe hardwood siding was finished with a rosewood oil hardwood sealer, which is applied periodically in an extremely well kept manner to help maintain the like-new richness and coloration of the wood siding.
