In an earlier post, the architect stated that they are 1x4' cedar construction. Hope that helps!

Monkey Grass is growing to the left of the staircase. For more questions regarding the greenery, the landscape architect for this project was Travis Van Liere.

They are not bushes - appear to be single trunk birch trees which grow very well in Minnesota .

What Houzz contributors are saying:

6. Cantilever a space over the garage. This hillside house has the potential of being overpowering with its 3-story level. The architect played down the garage with box window built-out above it. An inviting set of stairs leads visitors to the main entry level.
