Casa Del Sol

A Seattle Homes & Lifestyles Home of the Year

• A tower, reminiscent of an old silo, doubles as a wildlife lookout and game room

• Numerous French doors blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors

• Custom glass railings rise to form windscreens that shelter the covered patio that includes a fireplace, barbecue, bistro oven, smoker and deep fryer

• The master suite is wrapped in glass on three sides to take advantage of the tremendous views

Of course, if you can't build around one, you can bring some in. Giant potted trees add drama and organic form. They can make even the smallest space feel larger: That's Mother Nature's secret!

We could bring the sides up a little farther before bringing them in. I think it looks better just bringing the sides in. Bringing the front in will make that ledge and mantle clash.,......I agree bringing them in up higher looks great
