Having all that cabinetry means we don't have to store things in the basement or have a garage full of stuff." The unencumbered basement benefits from the site's topography, which allows for a family room completely above grade. An additional guest room with dedicated bathroom and a small reading area occupy the less commodious areas. David took the subterranean basement area of the site's previ- ous house to make a "hockey room," where kids can burn off steam without harm to finished spaces. Pattern Play Architects love reveals and, for the most part, builders loathe them. Wyatt and partner Ryan Howard definitely mustered some deep reserves of patience in executing David's fiber cement rainscreen cladding. "Those panels were the tough- est part of the job," Wyatt recalls. "But they're also the most impressive aspect of the house. Every reveal lines up with a window or door. I had done a small rainscreen before, but nothing of this size and complexity. It was a real learning experience." (David managed the concrete contractor himself to ensure equal precision for the foundation walls formed on a 3-foot module.) Overall, the architect, who is also LEED accredited, is very happy with how the cladding functions.
