Baker-Laporte Residence- Ashland, Oregon

Local Beauty

Robert and Paula's Ashland, Oregon home features the local woods of their new base in the Pacific North-West and has been the product of many collaborations with great craftsmen and students. The fir frame is salvaged from the Grizzly Peak fire. Ceilings and shojii are crafted from the local Port Orford Cedar. The central Tulikivi, masonry oven was supplied  by Ashland's own Jamie Paiken of Alaska Masonry Heaters and skillfully crafted by Isaac Paiken. A traditional Tokanoma, built by Dale Brotherton and students grace the home. Earthen floors in the bedrooms were crafted by students in a workshop lead by Sukita Crimmel, and the earth plastered walls using American Clay were plastered by master craftsman Charlie Caruthers.
