First Floor

Features of the first floor include a vaulted ceiling in the great room, where a fairly significant bank of windows offers views of protected wetlands beyond. Rough timber elements accent the open kitchen area, where a free-floating table stands in for both dining table and kitchen island. The dining room will be closed off from other spaces by sliding barn doors.
