Menges Residence

Northstar, CA
2500 sf

The Menges' loved spending time at Northstar enjoying the many outdoor activities, but their condominium became too small. After purchasing a lot in the same area, they began a search for a semi-custom home design. Not finding any that were appropriate for the heavy snow loads, they contacted GDG to meld many of the features they liked in home-plan books into a winter-friendly retreat. This 3-bedroom, 2-bath home features a great room encompassing kitchen, dining and living areas under a dramatic cathedral ceiling that reaches to 25 feet. The exposed heavy-timber-frame stair seems to float in space. A private office and rec-room round out this efficiently planned home.
