This project consists of a garage/studio and a main house. The space between the buildings is defined by an existing apple and pear orchard. On the landward side of the house, the south-facing porch is protected from the prevailing northerly winds onshore. The house looks out over the water through the long row of windows on its north face, wearing its roof like a baseball cap on backwards. The house is symmetrically arranged with bedrooms, bathrooms, study, entry, and loft spaces placed on either side of the great room. Natural light is introduced through the wall of French doors and transom lights facing the water, transoms at all interior and exterior doors, double hung windows, and clerestory windows.

Masonry, age, permanence, gravity
I have an irrational fear of sleeping on the ground floor.
Can use the same idea with cement
like the stone stair idea it seems like it's been there forever... which is nice.
Steps and retaining walls
