RICHARDSON RESIDENCE- Under construction high in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains near Mammoth, CA, and this modern home has a maximum view, and a dramatic three story circular stair tower to a lookout eagles nest. The low slope metal roof is designed to carry up to an eight foot deep, snow load and the building can resist 130 MPH wind forces. Built using SIP construction, the exterior walls are clad with Corten corrugated sheet metal on the lower level where snow can build up, and horizontal Hardiplank “Artisan” siding on the upper level for low maintenance fire proof protection in an extreme mountain climate. Solar electric panels will power an all seasons heat pump system, backed up with radiant floor heating for optimum comfort.
