Soaring above the bedrock of Buck Mountain on Orcas Island sits a concrete, steel, and glass home resting on two concrete plinths. This 2,500 sq ft home is an engineering feat that required unrivaled construction precision. Clark inherited this project early on from a builder who was stymied on how to make the budget work, given the site’s limitations and obvious building challenges. Featured in numerous publications, including the front page of the Seattle PI in 2006, the “Buck Mountain House” does not look a day older than its final construction date. The artfully selected and installed materials in this home and its 360 degree views of the San Juan Island and British Columbia ensure that it will be the jewel on the mountain for generations to come.
