Sustainable and inexpensive to maintain. A canvas on which to paint your dream. As Frank Lloyd Wright proposed, a house must be in harmony with its environment and bring the outdoors, indoors. This house blends with the environment and uses the same stone of the Escarpment for the wood-burning fireplace at its heart, as well as in its foundation. It embraces both the world it touches and the exciting world seen in the distance.
