This spot on the northern beaches of Orcas Island has been in Louise Boone’s family since the late 1800s. The previous home here, her father’s, suffered from exposure at the top of a receding bank. The exterior of the contemporary Craftsman home, HardiePlank, reflects the colors of the water and forest. The home was built by Jonathan White of White Construction & Co.
The result is no small feat: A Craftsmany sort of contemporary, open and simple yet cabin comfortable, a place on the beach designed by Orcas architects Susan Stoltz and David Kau of Stoltz Kau Architects.
