The front of the house is a very unimposing simple design with a focus to the entry gates that leads one to the entry porch and interior courtyard.  This side elevation and interior courtyard is the focus of the house and where all family gatherings begin and end. 

Inside the home is simple, comfortable elegance for family living. Antique recycled timbers were used throughout the house and the back wall of the keeping room brings the painted brick of the exterior into the interior.  Windows that extend almost to the floor keeps the house light and airy, uniting the interior with the exterior.
