Danhakl Residence

Martis Camp, Truckee, California
9,400 square feet

This large residence with attached caretaker living quarters is wood framed with exposed heavy timbers throughout and the primary lateral system is wood shear walls. GDG designed steel roof trusses and moment resisting frames that could be concealed inside wood finish to maintain the craftsman motif. GDG worked closely with the architect to provide a structurally sound solution that was consistent with the architecture. This attention to detail manifested itself throughout the design in everything from timber roof joist type and proportions to intricate bolted connections. GDG also provided civil engineering, construction administration services and worked with both the contractor and the architect throughout construction to ensure a successful project.
