We all love this super low carbon footprint energy efficient Passive House,  it feels like it grew from the earth and

settled right in as if it’s always been there. A small-sized house designed for a local wood and metal sculptor, this wonderfully friendly modern house is nestled on a hillside overlooking Budd Inlet and the surrounding mountains. Together with the homeowner, we’ve created a refuge for inspiration, comfortable living and creating.
