This amazing home is made entirely of timer and it’s interiors are decorated in bold colors and modern lines.

The couple created a compact, 33-by- 33-foot two-level plan, which they framed in timber. On the first level, ceiling beams made of superstrong laminated veneer lumber stretch from wall to wall, allowing for an open interior around a central, freestanding box. Constructed of prepainted, green, medium-density fiberboard (MDF) the box contains a full bath, the kitchen, storage, a Murphy bed for guests, and stairs leading to bedrooms on the second level. The kids love to run around the space and sometimes play hide-and-seek there. On the south side of the house, an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling glass sliders leads to a patio and gardens.


Inside, the living areas flow around a green box that contains the kitchen and a full bath.
