This house is really people's choice. It is a very open and livable house with a lot of area for both open, public activities and cozy, quiet times. This was one of the most fun houses that I have built to date. The owner and I have become very close friends over the years. The house was built on a cost plus basis and done simply on a handshake. This house exudes warmth and spirit.
