The house is positioned to maximize the waterfront views, while also providing protected and shaded areas. A dock allows the home owners to have direct access to the waterway.

At the rear of the home, the dock leads up to a path that then leads to the house. A large wooden patio surrounds some trees and creates a place to enjoy the outdoors under the shade.
