So, what do you think? The only problem I see with this house is that I would never leave the entryway. I’d unroll a sleeping bag next to that little pond under the stairs and live my best camping-in-my-own-house life.

Oh, and thanks to Curbed’s House of The Day Feature where I spotted this home!

    This home is a perfect example of “bringing the outdoors in.” The stone and mosaic floors are amazing, as is the kitchen cabinetry.

    So much wonderfulness. However, being in Wisconsin, I wonder about the practicality of all that glass. Here in California it would be wonderful. Let’s just move this house.
