Fireweed House

The Fireweed House, named for a resilient flower that grows in the Pacific Northwest, features innovative and considerate designs. The entry is a French door so that, in the best weather, the house can breathe and residents can open their space to friends. Twelve teens from Franklin High School worked alongside mentors from Mithun to develop the Fireweed House design during fall 2018, and continued on with mentors from Dowbuilt to bring it to life in spring 2019. Slick shelving that doubles as a display gives the interior room to be personalized by its future residents. A fireweed flower mural on the side of house captures the spirit of resilience embodied by its namesake.
