The house is constructed on steel stilts and oriented to form three large apertures towards the most attractive views of the surroundings. By using standard sized sheet material such as plywood and oriented strand board, the architects managed to cut the building costs to only $190 per square foot.

While the sleek outer skin is made from steel siding, the interior walls are lined with birch plywood, which gives it a more rustic feel. The discrete entrance is complemented with a small porch that leads to a surprisingly spacious open-plan living room. The bedrooms are nestled into two smaller wings and feature minimalist furniture made from burnt wood, designed by San Francisco artist, Yvonne Mouser.
