McKernon & Luderowski
This project involved an existing log home that had been plagued with leaks. The solution to the problem was to build a rain screen over the entire structure. While addressing the problem, the owners decided to change the appearance of their house to a cedar shingle Adirondack-style. Designed by well-known architect Nils Luderowski, this is highly detailed with architectural timber accents, diagonal knee braces and exposed copper. The rooflines are being reconstructed to control the flow of the rainwater. A 2×4 wall has been added to all of the exterior walls. The resulting void between old and new walls has been filled with Urethane Spray Foam insulation thereby dramatically increasing the R-value. The copper flashing gives detail making it whimsical and decorative.
