Seeking to reinforce a human scale in the main house, the architects kept the requisite living room, kitchen, and first-floor master relatively small with average-height ceilings. Then they pulled them apart and inserted a soaring central breezeway that serves as the main dining room. It's part interior room and part screened porch. Thresh- olds to all the rooms that connect to it are fully weatherstripped. Depending on the whims of Mother Nature, the dining room can be left open to the elements or closed off at each end with glass wall sys- tems and conditioned for comfort. This page: Shiplap walls slice through the master bedroom, morphing into closet cabinetry and covering bathroom ceilings to make way for expanses of tile.
