Construction of a new MossCreek designed home located just outside of Seattle, WA is moving along well ahead of schedule. The exterior of the home is 99% complete and the interiors are really starting to come to life. In a classic MossCreek style, the home features reclaimed timbers on both the interior and exterior. This, combined with the use of long roof overhangs and stone water tables, allows the home to integrate nicely into the surrounding landscape. Click on the image for the latest progress photos.

43. Stay in a MossCreek Cabin

We are often asked “Where can I see a MossCreek Home?” And, now that we have created several cabin designs, people want to know “Where can I stay in a MossCreek Cabin?” We are now happy to share with you a location where you can stay in a MossCreek Cabin, and see MossCreek homes; on Lake Norris in Tennessee can be found the “Willows Communities”. The developers commissioned MossCreek to create several small designs for them, and among these are the Cider Mill, and Settler’s Forge. Visitors can now stay in these homes through a rental program offered by the Willows. Located within this same development can be found both a MossCreek “Pintail” and “Teal” home that have been built as private residences.

39. Challenging Site For A New MossCreek Home

MossCreek just returned from a new project kick-off for one of our most challenging build-sites yet. We were greeted with heavy rains at the job site, and once the skies cleared, we could see that this design would call upon all our skills. The site is a slope bordered on one side by a creek, another by a large Beech tree, and then two utility easements. The building envelope is long and narrow, but with a great view of the creek, and the client wanted to be sure that the exterior of the home incorporated all the features that create the unique MossCreek style. The floor plan also needed to maximize the available square footage. MossCreek continues to work closely with the client to create a great home, and you can click the image to see initial sketches.

38. Clients Looking For Warmer Winters Look to MossCreek

MossCreek is currently working with clients from the Great Lakes region who are moving south in search of warmer winters and easier year-round living. The clients are building in a development near Chattanooga, Tennessee in which MossCreek has already created another home as well as some of the community amenities. As the clients’ needs have changed, so have their home requirements, and MossCreek has already created a couple different versions of their “perfect home” for them to review. As part of our custom design services, clients work with MossCreek to refine initial design concepts as much as needed, MossCreek then takes the final design and creates the construction documents.

37. MossCreek Goes West, Again

MossCreek has created many great homes in the western states, including one of our largest homes ever, and MossCreek Brand Manager/Photographer Erwin Loveland just returned from a 7 week, 11,277 mile western states road trip. During the trip, Erwin visited MossCreek designed homes both under construction and completed. In all, projects in 11 states including the resort communities of Big Sky MT, Jackson Hole WY, Park City UT, Durango CO and Canada, were visited. In addition to taking numerous photos, Erwin met with several builders, developers, and even potential new MossCreek design clients on the trip.
