“The Methow Valley is a land of weather extremes with temperatures reaching over 100 degrees in the summer and dropping well below 0 degrees in the winter,” Confluence said in a press release. “Building beautiful and functional homes in this environment is a challenge for architects, designers and builders.”
Confluence board member Loy Young said this year’s tour plays on the quintessential aspects of the valley. “Reflecting the beauty of the Methow Valley, these nine homes have a sense of place and offer a diverse selection of unique designs,” Young said.
