order to reduce the height and to work with the steep slope, the house
cascades down from the top in three levels: living/dining/kitchen (Great
Room) on top, master bedroom suite and office in the middle, two
bedrooms and a play room on the bottom.
The exterior materials were chosen to be compatible with the heavily
wooded site and with neighboring houses. Note the painted wall studs
visible behind the many windows.
Despite using all of the allowed square footage, the house fits
comfortably into its remarkable surroundings.
