Located on 165 acres of Sonoma Valley, Camp Baird serves as a rustic retreat to escape from a family's urban dwelling. The compound is comprised of two structures, clad in weathered steel and slanted metal roofs, laid out in an L-shape. To maintain an authentic campground feel, most of the interior remains open to the outdoors, with a screened-in galley kitchen and dining area and an outdoor shower, while three enclosed spaces aren't limit by function and can be used for sleeping, lounging, or whatever need arises. Operating completely off-grid, the home is naturally cooled, heated by a pair of wood-burning stoves, and powered by solar panels. At the heart of the property, a massive deck explands out to an 82-foot-long lap pool and endless rows of live oak trees.
