Mountain modern prefabricated home in Tahoe boasts indoor-outdoor living

outdoor living

Sagemodern in collaboration with Gallagher Construction was responsible for the design of this mountain modern prefabricated home. Boasting 3,170 square feet of living space, this dwelling incorporates touches of heavy timber in its design, helping to blend in with its surroundings in Martis Camp, a private community in Truckee, California.

This striking home was designed to blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor living. A functional floor plan helps to maximize common areas and bedrooms to accommodate family and friends. Outdoors, there are 1,700 square feet of exterior deck space, featuring Ipe and copper-gray slate tile that is perfect for outdoor functions.

Interesting Fact: This home was built as modules with 90% of the finishes already installed. The modules are then craned into place and then there is a small amount of interior and exterior finish work.

The residence includes five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, with a fresh, clean design. With designer fixtures and finishes throughout, the home features sustainably harvested hand scraped hickory and copper-gray slate tiles with radiant heating on the floor.

The exterior facade is comprised of hot rolled steel, cedar channel siding and board-formed concrete with heavy timber and trellis details. Energy-efficient features include thermal insulation of walls, roofs and floors, energy-efficient windows, sun protection, and bioclimatic architecture and solar water heaters.

What We Love: This mountain modern prefabricated home offers clean lines and simple design features, producing an inviting living space. We are loving the whole concept of this home, from the way it was constructed to the materials elements added to elevate this simple design. A beautiful concept from start to finish!
