Country Cottage

Location: Whatcom County, Washington

Perched on a high point of a large open field, this home has excellent views of the surrounding property. Ample windows and skylights bring in plenty of natural light while the natural tongue and groove wood ceilings further help brighten the spaces. A large ridge skylight is positioned at the peak of the roof of the home and serves as a great way to connect with the natural world outside. The owners desired a smaller footprint with a higher attention to detail. Simple materials and clear expression ground this home into its ranch setting.
