by Lou Maxon In our latest Backstory series, Seattleite Lou Maxon recounts the thrills and trials of ditching the suburbs, buying property, and designing and building a modern house with Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects. Week Seven: First site visit with Tom Kundig. It was a clear, sunny spring Saturday in Carnation, the town thirty miles east of Seattle where we’d purchased 21 acres. Our house in the suburbs had sold and was all packed up and ready for moving day. The five of us arrived at Starbucks to meet up with Tom Kundig and our project architect Edward LaLonde. This was the first time my wife and three boys met the team that would be directly responsible for designing our future residence. (I’d met Tom once before, but hadn’t yet met Edward.)
