Sunset Idea House Sneak Peek

Sunset House, originally uploaded by c8mills.
When the invitation to the Open House Reception at the new Sunset Magazine House in Truckee came in the mail, I almost fell over. We still don’t know why our name was on the list, but we were glad to get a chance to go, for free, without crowds, with appetizers, and wine!

The house is built in the typical rich Tahoe style on a golf course. It’s not as big as you might think, because it is in a basic U shape. The main living area runs cross the bottom of the U, with a large outside deck, and then two small bedroom wings. They’ve included fancy technical stuff like radiant heating, solar power, tankless water heaters. And they used a lot of exposed concrete and reclaimed lumber for the building.
