The Montana house is located in a transitional neighborhood downtown. The quiet exterior of the house gives way to an interior courtyard.
At the heart of this house, the courtyard provides a private and lush environment for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.

A high-performing yet small home perched on a ledge, the Honey Creek house opens toward the southeastern breezes and views down the valley. Net-positive energy and rainwater capture and reuse systems are formative to the design, allowing a growing family to live within the means their climate provides. Composed of "caves" and "treehouses", the home connects its residents to nature at every level.
