Plan Description

Experience this earthy gem of a house, while relaxing in your magical gazebo or warming your toes in front of a sandstone fireplace. This picturesque straw bale cottage shines as an example of graceful green living, with its super insulated walls, a structural insulated panel (SIP) roof, a foundation of insulated concrete forms (ICFs), high-performance windows, natural materials, and non-toxic finishes creating a comfortable indoor environment. Sunlight from the eyebrow window sparkles deep into a timber framed, vaulted great room. French doors open onto a wrap-around deck from the living and dining spaces, and an efficient kitchen completes the spacious feel of this compact plan. The language of heavy timbers and textured stucco is complemented by rustic details and custom wood cabinetry. A raised platform bronco full of pillows and a treehouse-like loft are highlights of this cozy and exciting great room. A beautiful bathroom, with a two-person cedar and river rock shower and generous soaking tub, peeks out at the surrounding landscape.
