This house was a design build, and as usual, design builds always present a set of unique challenges as the structure unfolds. However, these are challenges we enjoy; finding structural solutions for unexpected design changes. One challenge presented on this project was the late discovery of unstable soils due to this construction site previously being used as a landfill. This obstacle was resolved by redesigning the foundation system. The solution became concrete grade beams spanning between helical piles, so in essence, this house is sitting on structural stilts which are buried within the soil.
