Artisans logoThis cozy prefab home is nestled in the woods with the sounds of nature and country living as the background music for the homeowners while tending their extensive gardens-to-be. We designed this home for the precise needs of the two homeowners, great walls of book shelves, large inviting spaces for entertaining, cozy spa like bathroom with views to the woods, dramatic bank of windows which blurs the lines of life inside to out, lots of natural daylighting and high ceilings and covered outdoor working areas to extend outside playtime well into winter months.
