Caleb Johnson designed his own family home to open up to the quiet forest in all seasons. The 1,250 square foot home blends visual interest, audible experiences, as well as olfactory and tactile experiences with those found in nature and landscape. The floor plan is designed for socializing and focuses on the proximity of different family members at different times of the day, giving options to be together or apart. Lawn and landscape are as accessible to the living space as an adjoining room.
The eastern white cedar exterior, interior beams, concrete floors and steel details were all left unfinished. This low-maintenance, stylishly simple home situated on a seven-acre lot was designed with the intention of growing with his family.
