Marvelous Modern Mountain Home In Truckee, California is a Prefab Hybrid.

This magnificent and inviting modern mountain home, Martis Camp #246, by Sagemodern is located in Truckee, California. Part of this home was actually prefabricated offsite in a Utah factory and the dining room/ great room were built onsite, making it what the architect, Paul Warner, calls a hybrid prefab.

Designed for family and guests, the home, which is set amongst the woods adjacent to the Dick Bailey designed putting park, has five bedrooms, including two master suites, a junior master, a guest room and a bunk room. The 3,250 square foot structure is designed as a family retreat with a large kitchen and great room for friends and family to gather after a day of skiing or hiking through the forest.

The great room features a local quarried stone fireplace, radiant heated Brazilian slate floors and walnut cabinetry:

The dining area:

The kitchen features a gourmet Thermador professional series, Hansgrohe faucets, walnut kitchen cabinets and casework, limestone countertops, slate flooring with radiant heating and a quartz backsplash:

Bedrooms (two master suites, one junior master, a guest room and a bunk room):

the mud room:

The custom windows and doors framed by exposed timber and steel bring in natural light to merge the indoor and outdoor living areas.

Architectural details:

The outdoor area will feature a spa area protected by a large boulder outcropping, a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and an outdoor BBQ area.

A heavy timber roof assembly and hot-rolled steel framing reduce the possibility of ice damming in the winter; they also reduce the cooling load in the summer. The exterior materials were picked to protect the home from the harsh climate.

The house is in a fire zone, so the exteriors are fire resistant, with heavy timber and steel overhangs, tempered glass in all the windows and vents that keep sparks and embers from entering the home.

An observation deck off the loft facing south provides a 270-degree view of the mountains and is a great place to watch the stars from, says Paul Warner.
