  3. The home was constructed with not only energy efficiency in mind, but also low maintenance. “Ninety percent of the water off the roofs is collected in gutters and piped into the cistern for use in the irrigation system,” Peter details, “and 100 percent of plant materials are native plants that should require little or no watering once they’ve been established.”

  7. Homeowner Anita Tidyman thought the walkways that her husband, Tim, and her uncle John King created needed a fountain. The large carved planter is reminiscent of her beloved Indian baskets; John surprised her with a round millstone for its base and married the two, with one of Anita’s ravens as its center post.

A charcoal-colored metal roof mimics the style of local farmhouses. “We tried to be consistent to the aesthetic of traditional building materials even though it’s a very modern home,” explains Paul.
