Project Description

This home is the personal residence of MHB founders, Greg and Tara Mantell-Hecathorn. The design inspiration comes from one of their favorite places- Lake Tahoe. Clean modern lines combined with a facade of stone wood and metal draws exterior interest. The incorporation of T&G Doug Fir ceilings and family harvested redwood creates a home that feels warm, personal, and comfortable. Wrap around decks with private views of the canyon and ridge expand the outdoor living space. This is another collaborative design with the MHB team and Reynolds-Ash Architect Brian Huff.
