Locally sourced hardwood is used throughout the house and this not only made the project a lot more sustainable, but also cut down dramatically on the building time and costs. The interior is simple and elegant with distractions if modern life being kept away. It is the view outside that holds your attention and the small bedroom with a smart little workspace and modest balcony help you relax and rejuvenate.
