Generous porches at front and back help hold snow and direct its melt, sheltering the wood elements of the exte- rior—reclaimed siding, notched half-logs, and hand-hewn fir beams and columns. All the wood has been worked in some way— weathered and salvaged, wire-brushed or sandblasted, and even burned in the Shou Sugi Ban tradition. The porches also provide essential shade and sun control for those western mountain views. After more than 6,000 square feet of choices, curations, and collaborations with homeowners and other team members, a new house was born. But is the result "traditional" or "modern"? Are the crite- ria standard enough for everyone to agree upon them? A modern architect might survey Owl Ditch Ranch's main house and barn and call them traditional, while a classicist might insist they're modern. No matter; once the punch list is done and the homeowner takes the keys, the argument is settled. Architects may enjoy parsing the finer distinctions of style, but most clients are just happy to call this comfortable mid- dle ground on the continuum "home."
