Located in Sandpoint, Idaho, this 10,000-square foot building consists of a mixture of dimensional wood framing and traditional log construction. Built to meet LEED Silver status, once certified it will likely meet LEED Gold status. A geothermal heating system and low-flow plumbing fixtures contribute to the LEED status along with a structure built using local resources. The scope of the project includes 13,500 square feet of new office and meeting space. The building is a wood framed structure with pre-engineered wood framed trusses supporting a majority of the roof. Long-span, small diameter log trusses support framing the entry areas.
