Project Description


True to its concept, purpose and program, this house is all about unique design moments and hands-on learning. Studio MM prides itself on creating homes that engage the client, highlight contemporary design, showcase local artisans, and emphasize high quality detailing and craftsmanship: TinkerBox embodies all of these qualities.

Exterior Cladding
Used Shou Sugi Ban technique on premium cedar siding
Researched and implemented technique ourselves, charring and nishing siding before installation • Modern recessed gutter detail matching exterior ashing to maintain sleek silhouette

Story Entryway
Features a double-height mahogany pivot door with dark bronze hardware
Solid wood open-rise stair milled from hardwood trees harvested from the TinkerBox property
Cantilevered roof with exposed wood beams divides public and private sections of the home and is continuous from front entry to back deck

Exterior Deck
Expansive deck sheltered by furniture- nish plywood roof
Roof is supported by a single cantilevered steel beam anchored to exterior replace
Fireplace also doubles as a wood- red grill and stainless steel accents line wood storage space

Woodshop and Garage
Extra-large garage space allows room for car storage and mechanical work (tinkering!) • Attached workshop/furniture studio space features custom oversize bi-fold door

Living Space
Expansive window seat with built-in hidden storage anchors the primary living space
Custom waterfall-edge marble island
Built-in wood stove with stainless steel hearth to match exterior detail
