As always the simplicity is what first drew me to this house. After staring at the images for a while the thing I began to notice was how it was sited and landscaped. Far too many homes and their accompanying property have a landscape design that feels right out of a Lowe’s ad spot or a home and garden magazine. The natural rough sort of plants and trees, as well as the exposed rock of this plot are to me so much more interesting and inviting. A home is a enough of an imposition on the natural landscape sometimes and the best counterstroke is to allow nature to embrace it and for them to harmonize together.
