This small house consists of a cluster of tiny buildings. A bridge leads to a tiny entry building that serves as the home’s front door. Beyond is a covered deck around which the other parts of the house are arranged. The living space is to the left, the sleeping space is to the right, and up a few steps straight ahead is a guest room. Differing cladding types and paint colors emphasize the multiple parts.

There is a total of 998 ft2 (92.7 m2) of heated space (the entry building is not heated). The main building contains the kitchen, the living room and a dining alcove under a sheltering “pergola”. The living room features a bookcase wall with built-in shelves framing three sets of French doors that open to another deck. The deck has an unconventional roof that slopes up and away from the building, offering a view of the treetops.

The yellow guest room, elevated above the central deck, is reminiscent of a tree fort. Inside there is a built-in double bed with a sleeping loft overhead.
