What Houzz contributors are saying:

Although Urrutia would not describe himself as fanatical about green building techniques, he did reuse much of the original home's board-and-batten siding as soffit material and fencing for the remodeled structure.

I have a soft spot in my heart for decks that preserve trees and are built around them. This one is unusual in that the stairs are also built around a tree. What a lovely spot to enjoy the view of the pool from.
