Cross Laminated Timber Home

Sisters, OR

This modern home in Oregon was built using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), which is a self-supporting heavy wood panel material made by gluing together solid-sawn lumber in overlapping panels. The result is a sustainable, carbon-sequestering, and extremely high-quality building material.

It is no surprise that CLT was suggested by London-based architect Alan Morris for this project, who is well versed in building with Cross Laminated Timber in the United Kingdom. Designed around the concept of a small box supporting a larger box, the self-supporting properties of CLT allowed the upper living area to float over the landscape, cantilevered out from the smaller garage below.
