Large trees keep the main living space and master bedroom/studio private.
The wide-open interior lives large with a double-height ceiling; folding doors connect to a north-facing covered deck.
Shane Thompson, FRAIA, designed the house on a budget, using a palette of plantationgrown pine, plasterboard, and corrugated-metal roofing. Blackbutt wood flooring with slight grain variations also add style without breaking the bank.
