What Houzz contributors are saying:

The house is anything but conventional. Its exterior walls and roof are biodegradable but designed to withstand Scandinavian winters. Its shape doesn't allow for snow to stay on the roof for long. Wooden shingles mimic tree bark in their slight expansion upon contact with moisture, creating a tighter surface.
Perhaps the big idea is to be small and anything but conventional.

Its a Habitat that seems warm and inviting. Its like somewhere you could just crawl into and sleep out the rain. The space also contrasts with this idea by using the cold natural environment. It is amazing how neat and well groomed this muddy and rough space looks.
