What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Houzz Tour: Cabin Studios in the Landscape
For a project with such extensive architectural and structural components, the natural landscape and terrain of the site played a remarkably significant role. The prominence of the green roofs and the insertion of the buildings into the landscape emphasize that in this design, the landscape remains the focus. The thoughtful and seemingly understated execution on both landscape and architecture leaves Feldman content with the “integrated, respectful, subservient and quiet” architecture of the cabins, and Hook hoping that with each trip, visitors to the site will “walk away satiated with nature’s beauty and their place within it.” Photography by Joe FletcherGeneral Contractor: JP Builders, Inc.More:Houzz Tour: Simple Luxury at a Swedish RetreatDirt Optional: Amazing Air Plants for Wall or Tree9 Cooling Rooftop Gardens
Becky Harris added this to Higher Ground: 6 Spectacular Landscapes
These two cabins were designed to work with the slope of a wooded Mill Valley, California, site.
Getting the heebie-jeebies isn’t reserved for just inside, either. In fact, the survey found that 39 percent of people consider the backyard at evening the spookiest place to be, followed by the garage (24 percent) and the basement (23 percent). A lot of being spooked has to do with hearing strange noises — or unidentifiable or random noises. Howling wind tops the survey for noises that give people fright (28 percent), followed closely by creaking floorboards (26 percent). More than one respondent said that mysterious voices spooked them the most.
