With a 27′ x 32′ footprint, this house is wrapped in barn siding and also vertically oriented windows. The trees outside are framed by the windows to the loft-like top floor. This house also has an open corner deck in the middle of the evergreens’ shelter, offering awesome views of the mountain and lake.

A long-north wall to the site is formed by the prefabricated shotgun 2-car garage. This garage also connects to the house by a short bridge. This bridge is protected by the eave. Through the woods, there is another bridge that defined as a “dock” entrance and seating area.
