Inside, the living room enjoys the benefits of the windows on the front of the house, with an abundance of natural light filling the room. Wrap around low cabinets provide storage and a place to display plants and the television. A fireplace has been built into the wall to add warmth on a cool night.

Outside, there’s a pergola that cantilevers over the deck, and defines the outdoor room without impeding on the circulation and function of the space.

The windows on the second floor of the home provide views of the neighborhood, and make this room bright and airy. A desk with a shelf and storage cabinet has been built into a small alcove in the corner of the room.

In one of the bathrooms, the design has been kept minimal, while a skylight draws the eye upwards to the natural light, making the room feel larger and brighter.
