bordered on three sides by water, wetlands, and woods. The client asked us to design a house with a minimal impact on the pristine landscape, maximum exposure to the views and all the amenities of a year round vacation home.

cedar entry and garage doors added warmth and style. Final touches of natural stone, a paver stoop and walkway, along professionally designed landscaping. This home went from ordinary to extraordinary! Architecture was done by KBA Architects in Minneapolis.

trying to paint a mediterrean style home in jamaicia really love these colors
I photographed this home some time ago. The best I can tell you is tan & white. Your paint store can help you figure out the details.

It would also be helpful to contact local contractors who might specialize in green roofs, or see if you can find any who

Good example of tucked in design if land was purchased first then other homes built first.
They lucked out with a stellar design, team, Eric says. Architect Malcolm Davis had extensive experience designing homes in the neighborhood and worked closely with the local committee to get as close as possible to the design the Agnews wanted.
