Wood siding continues within the entry vestibule to blur the distinction amongst the interior and exterior. The primary interior area is used for residing, dining and a 2-story tall kitchen, which acts as the metaphorical heart of the home. A display porch extends off the dining region to look out more than the pond and surrounding woods.
