Thank you. The railing is a component system that is manufactured by a company in Irvine, CA called Rami Designs.

Wood on Railings? - Hi- I'm wondering if this is Ipe wood on the railings and windows? The spacing is great. Thank you.

Thank you. Yes, the wood species on the railings is Ipe. The doors and windows however are Honduran Mahogany.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Design into hillsides and other topographic features. This home is built into its terrain, and that makes its inhabitants feel rooted and secure. Sometimes terrain isn't clear; it has been eradicated from most housing developments, for example. When topography and natural features can be identified, mesh with them. Squirrels like their nests to be difficult to distinguish from tree branches, and we like ours to become part of the landscape, too.
