A landscaped path leads to the front entrance, with the garage on the right and the house on the left. The home has been designed with a flat roof and floor to ceiling glass windows, allowing sunlight to fill the interior.

Inside, the main living area has high ceilings with exposed rough sawn Douglas fir beams and 12 foot wide sliding glass doors open to the front yard. The shape of the ceiling is similar to the form of a butterfly’s wine, with it sloping up in two directions.
