Tree House-Kiawah Island contemporary living room
 

Tree House-Kiawah Island

Photo Credit: Holger Hobenaus

Description: The owners of this home travel extensively and appreciate the great outdoors. Global travels shaped their desire for a home that embraces nature. The bridge connecting the sleeping and living structures allows cool ocean breezes to pass from the marsh to the front yard; decks and stairs to pool and terrace visually connect inside and out. Most walls from the street are solid, providing privacy, yet they open to rooms of glass, timber and soaring ceilings with views of Bass and Cinder Creeks and Folly Island.

Beams are gorgeous - Could you please tell me more about those gorgeous beams? Are they cedar? Are they architectural quality glulam? Stunning!

The Olde Mill
We did not make the beams pictured here, but make beams just like them! We manufacture engineered beams that are made from reclaimed longleaf pine that is over 100 years old. The inside of our beams is hollow which allows for easy installation! Please feel free to contact me or visit our website at theoldemill.com for more information! (below is a picture of some of our work)

Would you share the spec on the mini recessed lights in the beams? - I have been looking for something that is small enough to fit into a beam without compromising its structural integrity. Would you be willing to share which you have used here? Thanks Much!

Who is the fireplace manufacturer and is it wood burning or gas? - The reason I ask if it is wood or gas is because I can't see the flue which may be hidden behind but can't tell if it is gas or not and I have a client that loves this picture. Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The great room feels like some sort of natural habitat; besides the great views, a live-edge side table, root-ball bases on the coffee table, plants, natural finishes and plenty of open space connect the space to its surroundings even more. Here you can see how hugging as many trees as possible in the site planning can pay off — not only are the live oaks beautiful to admire, but they provide a shade canopy that cuts down on energy costs during the long, hot summer months.
