This playhouse structure is clad inside and out with rough-sawn spruce boards, which are naturally weather resistant, making it good for the family and the environment. Storage cubbies offer easy access spaces for toys and games, while a chalkboard wall encourages drawing and writing.

A ladder leads to the second floor loft area where twin skylights provide daylighting and the ability to follow the evening stars with the telescope.
This neutral, transitional living room is bathed in light thanks to stacked rows of picture windows. The soft blue hue found in the sofa pillows is repeated in varying values throughout the home, drawing the eye through the space and forming a connection between the rooms.
