Houzz is the new way to design your home.
ere we're looking at the front door. One walks into the house under a low wood ceiling, but a few steps away into the living area the space rises dramatically. After seeing the wood beams outside, the exposed wood trusses make sense; the structural connection between inside and outside is very well done. Yet on the inside the effect is even more dramatic, giving some rhythm and sense of scale to the large living area.
The impression of the living area being the heart of the house is reinforced by the fireplace in the brick wall (visible from the rear of the house seen earlier) and the wood slats that define the entry and act as guardrails for a second-floor lookout. The brick and wood, like the wood trusses, connects inside and outside, bringing the sunshades and substantial brick wall inside.
my dream home!
