Rolling Hills Home

This 4,600 sq. ft. home sits nestled in the hills of high end neighborhood of Rolling Hills in Wenactchee, WA.  Surrounded by a desert landscape and looking out over the Wenatchee Valley, this home is partially dug into the earth as to respect the surrounding natural landscape and provide a more natural insulation during the extreme cold and hot months.

The style is of a craftsmen/Southwest adobe fusion with exposed wood beams and stone footings, but also features stucco exterior walls to the east and north as to hold insulation and help warm and cool this large home.

The landscaping stays true to that of the natural scape and features sage, clay earth, boulders brought up from the foundation work, and a pond, as to minimize the water use in this dry and arid climate.
