East House


A stream runs between the house and garage, with access by footbridge.  The gentle splashing of the brook carries into the bedrooms, with sunlight dappling onto the walls. 

Mature trees were kept intact, concealing the home from neighbours, and providing that all important connection to nature.

Dark colors were chosen for the exterior to help the home blend into the bush.
