What Houzz contributors are saying:

A closer view of the south side of the house reveals some of the defining characteristics of the design: the gable forms, the corrugated siding/roofing, the generous glazing and the "cuts" — one open and one roofed over. It appears vernacular in form yet contemporary in execution, something Nimmo confirms: "We started by considering the fundamentals of a barn: simple form, usually linear, repetitious, gable, local/humble materials etc." His team balanced this with an innovative, sustainable approach to the architecture, inside and out.
Tip: When your guests are in a separate structure, it can be easy to forget they are there. Create connections between guesthouse outbuildings and the main house. The guest cabana on this property shares the fire pit with the main house, so guests and their hostess can meet up and warm up. Photos: See the rest of this ranch-style art gallery compound
