A Couple Builds Their Ideal Retirement Home in the Forest

Modular October 1, 2016

This couple enjoyed their holidays for many years in Greenwater, Washington. Then they had a beautiful idea: to build a striking home … as part of a larger plan to spend their retirement in this home.

For many adventurous years, they enjoyed biking, skiing, and other exciting outdoor activities in Greenwater. Many happy seasons have come and gone and instead of just being sightseers in the area, the nice idea of having a secondary residence was put into reality.

The forest is indeed a wonderful place for them as they venture to the natural surroundings that Mother Nature can offer. Every single day offers exciting sceneries of the forest and the sites are fantastic which is ideal for retirees.

Robert Hutchison Architecture firm designed this lovely home in the forest. It consists of two bedrooms and is perfectly shielded in stained cedar. According to Hutchison, the east side of the area is the magnificent White River and every summer, the couples can enjoy the sounds of whooshing river all over the house.

For more of Robert Hutchison Architecture’s work, find them in our shipping container homes directory.
