Silver Wing Hanger Homes

I was able to put myself through college with a job at the airport in Spokane. With that job I got my pilots license. So when Silver wing at Sandpoint ID asked me to design their hanger home I was excited about a project that used my aviation background. I was able to design the whole project from flooring and stone baths to the furniture and accessories.

In keeping with the rustic flavor of the area we went with a rustic lodge theme with a flair for aviation. So as you look at this project you will see a lot of art and accessories that definitely take on the aviation theme down to the gas pump and hot air balloons in the children's bedroom. My favorite picture is the one with the spitfire air plane and the vintage Bentley in British racing green. Note that the great room encompasses the kitchen, eating bar, dining room, and living area and has a commanding view of the whole airport. It is finished with a tooled leather sofa and leather wing back chairs are centered around a map coffee table, and yes the drawers are big enough for aviation maps. In the dining area we have a hand scraped alder dining table and matching chairs with a glass case for the buffet from our friends at T.S. Berry. All the bathrooms in this project have many different stones such as marble, granite, and slate that pull the whole look together.

If you get up to the Sandpoint Area, this is a must see project. There are many lots still available to build on. So let's create your dream or vision at the Sandpoint airport. For more information please visit
