Within the home, a whitened oak wood screen with clear and translucent panes, defines the vestibule or small foyer. The focal point of the living room is the horizontal fireplace and custom mantel above, which allows the owners to display their treasured photos and artifacts.

The large doors and windows enable a natural flow of movement and line of sight from inside to out, great for backyard entertaining and carefree monitoring of children.
