This outdoor dining area is stacked with amenities, including a large grill, refrigerator and food-warming drawers for ease in entertaining large groups. A separate area includes a sink and storage and can be closed off to the elements thanks to a telescoping glass wall.
This contemporary pool house includes a kitchen and seating area. An oversized, cantilevered ceiling provides shade and shelter to the grilling area, and a telescoping glass wall can be closed to protect the seating area and bathroom from the elements when needed.
An antique telescope points to the wall of multi-pane windows in this neutral living room. Layered window treatments, white armchairs and a leather trunk serving as an end table round out the eclectic look.
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 blue racer rocker, made of recycled milk bottles, offers fun yet durable seating. 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.
Telescoping glass doors open to the home's deck area. An adjacent wall of cedar panels showcases three flat-screen televisions, which are covered by motorized screens made to look like wall art. The vaulted ceiling visually expands the space and surrounding transom windows allow plenty of natural light to fill the room.
