Inside, the home completely opens up to the view. High ceilings covered in wood draw your eye upward and make the room feel grand and spacious. The living room, dining room, and kitchen all share the same space, with the living room focused on a large fireplace.

In the kitchen, a large island creates plenty of counter space and provides seating for six people. Clerestory windows line each side of the main living room/kitchen and help to make the roof appear to float above the space.
