Forest Horizons

Located on a ridge in a forest in Boone, IA, this house was inspired by a kid’s teeter-totter. The middle of the house sits on the top of the ridge and the two ends project out into nature as when the teeter-totter is in balance. These two ends are a private and a social screen porch sitting high above the ground. Both overlook the forest as it slopes down to the Des Moines River in Ledges park.

This house was published in the book “House in the Landscape: Siting your Home Naturally” by Jeremiah Eck, Princeton University Press.
