The crows nest is actually a light monitor that brings natural light into the center of the house.
Here is a link to a Houzz Tour that Becky Harris did last year. it will show some interiors and you will be able to see how the light monitor works.

Thanks for your question !

The fence is custom fabricated out of western red cedar.
I suppose one could build this fence out of a vinyl product.
Thanks for asking !

The roof is a charcoal grey standing seam roof. AEP is the manufacturer.

Thanks for asking.

The side walk leading into the house is inset with slate pavers. The path around the garden is inset with crushed gravel.

Our winters can be fairly mild with temperatures ranging from the low 30's to the mid 40's, however we do get an occasional heavy snow fall.

Thanks for asking

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A large part of the collaboration between architect and landscape architect was coordinating the indoor and outdoor spaces in terms of materials and sensibility — for example, this public-entry courtyard that guides guests indoors via a formal axial plan that connects the parking court to the house. Once inside, guests enter the more public and formal areas of the house.The strict, straight lines become less formal and turn curvy as they move farther out from the house and wrap around the private areas, like the bedroom wing to the left and the outdoor rooms around it.
