The Butterfly House

Nestled in the woods on the edge of the bluff above Quartermaster Harbor, the Butterfly House on Vashon Island has been a long time in the making. Although the clients have owned this 9 acre undeveloped lot for a few years, they were having difficulty finding an affordable house design they loved. They learned about FabCab through friends, and they decided to have FabCab design a custom home for them.

The Butterfly House combines FabCab’s timberframe and SIPs structural system with a floor plan unique to the client’s needs, with a separate bedroom wing, flexible space to accommodate guests, and open living spaces that blur the line between indoors and out. A large screened porch assures maximum enjoyment outside, even when bug season is at its peak!

The Butterfly House is about to be submitted for a construction permit, with construction slated to begin this coming spring.

“The aesthetics of FabCab with its really modern look and exposed timberframe construction really resonated with us. My husband and I both loved it immediately. We were suddenly very excited about the possibility of having found an affordable and beautiful home for our property. Evermore thanks to Emory and Chelsea and all the others who are literally making this long standing dream of ours come to fruition.” – Sara and Jed

  1. I love the design. Will this become one of the plans in your line? Would a butterfly roof work in Michigan? One last question (for now) is there a way to attach a garage? My husband and I don’t mind a detached one but a lot of the property in Michigan available now is in developed communities – at least where we live and an attached garages is a requirement.
