Hanson House

The Hanson House is a full-time forever home that rests on the bank of the Clark Fork River in Superior Montana. The project has many goals such as maximizing the morning light, durability, custom wood finishes, and a modern woodsy feeling in the middle of town. We worked with the clients and builder from start to finish to make sure this owner-designed home maximized the benefits of CLT, GLT, Glulams, and Thin GLT. The pre-construction planning and just-in-time delivery were crucial to getting the house dried in for winter and allowing the builder to finish the house during the cold winter months.
