We thoroughly enjoyed working with The Cascade Joinery in building this lodge in California. The client is larger than life, the builder is way larger than we, and the site is larger than large; inspiring us to craft some larger than humongous key-laminated beams to support the roof. These must be the largest key-laminate beams built in North America for a century. The large seismic loads are absorbed in a series of significant steel moment frames that we detailed to be largely concealed within the walls. All in all, a very large amount of fun was had by all.
