What Houzz contributors are saying:
A green roof planted with moss and ferns from the surrounding Columbia River replaced a deteriorating roof and insulates the home efficiently.‘Every room in the house works hard, and that’s really the point. We redesigned everything and gutted it and turned the interiors into a highly efficient space,’ says Helgerson.
Shot straight on without a flash, this photo feels warm and inviting. The time for this natural light is usually about 20 minutes after the sun sets. The light level needs to be just right - from the inside light to the last bits of daylight - to get this glowing-lantern feeling.
