Rierson Guest House

Martis Camp, Truckee, California
1600 square feet

The modern styling of this detached guest house features large windows and open spaces while emphasizing the structural components by blending the exposed steel and timber framing with stone veneer and board-formed concrete walls. Structurally, the home is largely wood framed with wood shear walls as the primary lateral system. Steel framing is utilized in areas with large open spans and includes a steel moment resisting frame. GDG worked closely with the architect to ensure that the unique architectural styling showed through while delivering a high-quality and economical structural solution.
