Front Design and Yard

A house that would be perfect in a rural setting or even in the city, this little cottage has concrete walls, glass windows and sliding glass doors, and porch posts made from logs or trunks of real trees.

Soft pastel gray tones are used to paint the outside walls; though you can pick earth tones for better effect. Designed to maximize the view, the porch features a couple of chairs and some built-in benches made of wood.

This particular house as a pond in front as it is set in the middle of a farm.
