Cook

The Cook house at The Sea Ranch was designed to meet the needs an active family with two young children, who wanted to take full advantage of coastal living. As The Sea Ranch reaches full build-out, the major design challenge is to create a sense of shelter and privacy amid an expansive meadow and between neighboring houses. A T-shaped floor plan was positioned to take full advantage of unobstructed ocean views and create sheltered outdoor spaces . Windows were positioned to let in maximum natural light, capture ridge and ocean views , while minimizing the sight of nearby structures and roadways from the principle spaces. The interior finishes are simple and warm, echoing the surrounding natural beauty. Scuba diving, hiking, and beach play meant a significant amount of sand would accompany the family home from their outings, so the architect designed an outdoor shower and an adjacent mud room to help contain the outdoor elements. Durable finishes such as the concrete floors are up to the challenge. The home is a tranquil vessel that cleverly accommodates both active engagement and calm respite from a busy weekday schedule.

Hi there, this looks very similar to one of our products, Tuftex - you can find out more about this product here: http://ondura.com/our-products/tuftex/.

If you're looking to use this product for any of your home projects, Tuftex is available at most Lowe's locations.

We did the same thing on our pergola. It's just transparent panels that you can get at Home depot.

HI. We live in South Florida. Love the design, but was thinking the steel corrugated roof- so it will keep the sun out. I am alittle nervous about the wood- it is so hot here- even the pressure treated wood turns yucky and grey. Thoughts? Thank you.
