Rustic Mountain Modern Net Zero Energy Home

Location: Terrebonne, Oregon

Nestled on a bluff overlooking the Crooked River with majestic views of Mount Jefferson, Mount Hood, and the Three Sisters, this 5-acre home site in Terrebonne deserved a home of this caliber to serve the goals of our retired clients. Built to exceed Net Zero Energy standards, this home includes two Tesla Powerwall batteries to provide power (including running the well pump) in case of extended power outages. More importantly, this super-efficient home will use less energy, be more comfortable inside and have healthier indoor air quality than standard code-built homes, while sacrificing nothing on design and style. This home balances optimal house location & orientation for solar energy production while taking full advantage of the views from the home & home site.

2271 sq. feet
3 bedrooms
2.5 baths


The clients favored a Mountain Modern style with rustic accents. To achieve this, we mixed interior and exterior finishes using weathered metal, wood and natural stone to give the home a warm, inviting feel. The high-performance windows are from Andersen, whose Fibrex composite frames stand up to the extreme weather variations we experience in the high desert. Vertical wood siding from Montana Timber Products adds a beautiful stained-wood look while also being fire-resistant. Exposed timber trusses on the front and rear porch add to the Mountain Modern aesthetic, coordinating beautifully with the custom wood garage doors.

Inside, a dream kitchen suite of luxury Thermador appliances welcomes homeowners and their guests. A large walk-in pantry provides plenty of storage and preparation space to supplement the kitchen. The kitchen is open to the great room, whose stunning custom cedar ceiling and exposed ridge beam draw your eye to the wall of windows and the amazing mountain views beyond. The stone veneer fireplace with Cement Elegance custom hearth & mantel makes for a cozy spot to enjoy a book by the fire or a movie on the adjacent TV.

The primary suite is an oasis of its own – with heated floors in the bathroom, dual vanities with ample storage, a slipper-profile soaking tub and generous walk-in shower. The window at the bathtub perfectly frames the owners’ stunning view of Mount Jefferson. A fully built-in custom closet system rounds out the luxurious comfort of the primary suite.

The guest wing includes two generous bedrooms, a full bath and easy access to the main living room and kitchen. The oversized laundry room doubles as a mudroom with a bench and storage for boots and coats. We predict these homeowners will enjoy making the most of their retirement years here in their forever home.
