This small house grew significantly in livable space with this 500 sf backyard covered patio addition. Framed with round pole timbers and notched joinery, this roof structure gives a utilitarian, yet naturalist feeling. The roof covering uses clear SunTuf panels which for allow for maximum daylight while protecting the outdoor living space from the winter elements. The owners do most of the garden processing and outdoor dining in the new space.
The existing cob oven, built by the owners, gets a fancy hood to direct smoke out through the roof, made from a blue steel drum to look like a giant lotus flower.
