In our first pass at the design process, we developed the basic design for the plan using our prototype "Sea Ranch Building Blocks". In order to preserve the greatest number of trees possible, we decided to situate the home within the larger redwood grove on this lot, and the detached garage in a smaller one (see plot plan). Use of cantilevers will give us more space over the driveway on the east elevation of the home, as well as a cantilevered window seat in the living room, giving the feeling of sitting right among the trees on the west elevation.
