Rock Reach Dos
This prefabricated steel home is remotely located in an area with limited access and great natural beauty. The program called for a modest residence that can be built and maintained with limited impact to the existing surroundings and free of ongoing maintenance. The home is elevated off the landscape on 8-steel columns that allow both the home and decks to float above the natural terrain. The continuous steel columns, extending from the footing to roof deck, form the key component of the building system's bolted moment resisting steel frame. The steel frame, building materials and systems, are prefabricated and transported “flat-packed” to the job site. With the system’s speed and efficiency this project was built over an 8 week period with minimal construction waste and disturbance. It is the latest home to utilize an established building system with the goal of greener, more efficient building through thoughtful design.
