The natural materials are not only light but also durable. These materials include exposed ceilings and concrete floors to reduce material consumption. The custom-made nail-lam panels and material exploration are made of pine-beetle lumber, adding warmth throughout and afford increased ceiling heights.

The strong indoor-outdoor relationship can be created with strategically placed skylights and windows. This relationship allows light to enhance user comfort and filter throughout the modest dwelling. A warm atmosphere also can be inserted into the house spaces with the natural light and provide a brighter feeling to the house interiors.
