A gem indeed....no gymnastics, just a straightforward, orderly plan with the goal of maximizing view and disturbing the site minimally. Impeccable detailing and craft in the casework helps too.

The entry is so good. Such elegant simplicity. Mr. Davis did basically the same thing on his cabin that’s featured in the “Not So Big House” book. This iteration seems more dramatic with the entry threshold immediately pulling the eye to the bird walk.

It certainly is direct. And the axis of the entry passes straight through the house, through the kitchen in fact, to align with the birdwalk/deck (which appears to be slightly tapered in plan).

I was reminded of the alignment of the (former) entry point at Taliesin III residence with its Birdwalk.

Kelly has used this attractive random lap siding on several of his houses both indoors and outdoors.

The clerestory living room windows are reminiscent of several houses by E. Fay Jones.
