Located in Bend, Oregon, the Harkin Residence is a little unusual for a custom residence. First, it’s fairly modest in size, well under the typical scale of custom projects in the area. But it’s also special in its attention to durable materials.

For example, the home's exterior is stucco with integrated color, and its simple, shed-style roofs feature metal roofing. Other areas of siding include metal and concrete, and windows are aluminum clad. The patios are concrete, and wherever practical, floors are either concrete or tile, or both.

Nothing of the sort had ever been attempted.
