Really? Having houseguests is not made more pleasant by having your ability to do your work canceled by their presence. Because the Nobles needed a dedicated workspace for writing and other projects, we added another piece on the “ell” (see the floor plans on p. 25). The trick was to use this extension to give the ell an endpoint—and that mostly would be accomplished by how the roof was treated.

As an accessory dwelling, this house was limited by ordinance to having an interior no larger than 800 sq. ft. Long sightlines and shared spaces make the public areas seem bigger, while the main bedroom’s location off a short hall emphasizes privacy.

Seattle-based Prentiss stays at the cabin about eight nights every month. “I have an old oak table that used to be my grandmother’s,” he says. ” Perched on a hill overlooking the Pacific, the cabin is filled with windows—360 square panes of glass in total—and pairs of French doors that fill the rooms with soft light from the surrounding forest.
