From the architect

The home is a path through the West Va hills. The path splits and meanders to know where… to know where nothing is left but self and nature. The cloak of nature and soul are equally in harmony punctured by growth and rebirth all afloat. Swaying trees and swirling winds scoop clouds of water to feed the split trees. A rock opens as a stairway and leaves paths to take in or out.

The home is simple, a main area and a guest house connected and apart. The main place is a bedroom, kitchen, dining and living. Basics are met under ceilings that are vaulted in wood. The living trees were saved and become captured art as they puncture the home preserved for lovers of nature.
