“A rustic modern designed mountain house with little maintenance required and nothing but character. I now have big beautiful southern-facing windows that give me free heat in the winter and are perfectly shaded by my extended overhang in the middle of summer, just as designed. I’m the talk of the neighborhood.”

– Stavros Georgio
