Part of a three-acre mass timber master development, Wilson Townhomes is a 14-lot subdivision development, with family-sized near zero lot-line townhomes comprised of 4 and 5 bedroom homes, ranging from 2,650 sf to 3,450 sf, with large private outdoor areas and private car garages. Legal Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) located on the ground floor have flexibility to function as separate office, apartment, or guest quarters. The townhomes are family-focused in scale and function, where one can rent the ADU to offset the mortgage or have a place for guests, a nanny or parents to stay when life delivers kids – the home adapts as life evolves.

Inside, the CLT floor and roof panels are exposed on the ceiling showcasing the natural warmth and beauty of Douglas Fir floating over a spacious open floor plan. The structural CLT panels enable a “core & shell” structural design that maximizes future remodel flexibility. Walls are constructed of conventional light-frame wood, but parapets are of CLT which uniquely enable superior roof deck and solar panel support & connections.

Timber for CLT panels is sourced locally from wildfire-restoration work. Benefits of the timber material choice are significant. In addition to rural job-creation, the home’s structural design helps to spur a regional circular economy, to sequester carbon and to raise urbanites' awareness of sustainable forest practices, all benefitting future generations.
