Located in the community of Uppaway, Lake Tahoe, the Johnston Residence is a lakefront custom home. The location of the residence required it to meet exceptionally strict environmental land-use criteria. A grand fireplace forms the structural and architectural focal point from the home that affords spectacular Lake Tahoe views. The owner was so committed to the design that they purchased a redwood logging facility to supply and enhance the interior paneling and cabinetry detail features. Locally sourced granite stone was also utilized for the exterior material, keeping with the lakefront boulder shoreline.
