The butterfly roof satisfies the subdivision’s minimum-slope requirement, though perhaps not in the way the document’s drafters anticipated. A level section of yard retained by a low concrete wall serves as a green deck.
The long concrete wall borders the gallery-like entrance hall, and the fountain pool that lies beyond its glass end wall.
The great room enjoys a broad view of the Missouri River. A south-facing clerestory directs daylight deep into the kitchen area.
The master bedroom looks out onto the fountain pool as well as the river (not visible in this photo).
Two patterns of local cedar siding, plus a band of wider boards at window-head height, lend variety to the exterior wall surfaces.
