The Strong Residence is the current home of Garrett and family. Originally built in 1951, this was meant to be a small remodel. During our interior demolition it was discovered that the exterior walls were entirely built of wooden, surplus ammo boxes from world war II. As this was a project that Garrett was personally designing and constructing it was slowly taken down to the foundation as he formulated the design. Garrett personally performed the design, demolition, framing, electrical, roofing, finish work, hardwood floor, siding, decking, air sealing, and more. Because this home is only 2,000 square feet usage of space was critical to the design. Every space has been uniquely designed to maximize space and comfort. Triple pane windows, airtight construction, heat recovery ventilators, high-efficiency HVAC systems and rigid insulation help to keep comfort high and utility bills low. The style of this home is industrial with exposed duct work, reclaimed wood floors, exposed conduit, and brick walls inside. The exterior is made from a special wood treatment that simulates barn wood and corten roofing. Although the siding is wood, it is virtually maintenance free as the more it ages the better it looks!
