The Shorter Residence, located in Wenatchee, WA, by Pb Elemental Architecture is actually an addition to a 1906 apple orchard farm house.

The original farm house had already been renovated in a modern, minimalist style so the addition — comprising a master suite and living room — needed to match that same style. Designed to be a refuge for the couple and their newborn, the master suite has a cozy fireplace and a balcony with beautiful views. The exterior materials include corten standing seam, polycarbonate, cement fiber panels and cedar rainscreen siding.
