Creating a design that would incorporate forest views and fit the unique topography was a challenge for this
home.  The lot was heavily treed, very long and narrow with a number of slopes and valleys and a seasonal
creek bed.  Large glazed areas were important to create a larger sense of spaciousness in the small living
areas, let the surrounding forested area become part of the home and enhance the passive solar gain.  This
home was featured in the March 2007 issue of
Builder and the April 2007 issue of Residential Design &
Build
magazines.  It won the "Best Custom Home Less Than 3,000 sq ft" VIP Award from Vetter Windows
and Doors in 2006.
