View to Tree

View to Tree From Porch

When we design a new home or addition, we stand on the site and take in the views, sun angle, and approach to the home.  It is not uncommon for us to layout a home perfectly facing a special feature in the landscape, sometimes it is a fold in the distant valley other times it is a unique tree.  We are lucky that our photographer, Rob Karosis, notices these special views and takes advantage of them with his camera.  It is pretty rare that we design a porch that does not have a special view even if it is an outbuilding or an amazing perennial.
