Fry Residence

Location: Kootenai County, Idaho
Architect: Troxell and Associates

The structure is a 3,500 square foot home built on a steep site with uncooperative soils. Our office worked closely with the soil’s engineer to design a pier and grade beam foundation. Such a foundation will protect the structure in the event the upper soil strata should slide out from under the house. In the end, the owner was pleased with the additional expense of building on a hillside as it provided a fantastic view.
