As far as form goes, the Miner Road House isn't much different than any other contemporary home. What sets it apart is its unconventional facade. The structure is clad in weathered steel panels, an industrial contrast to the Northern California property. Taking notes from the wooded landscape, the interior is lined in white oak planks. A concrete fireplace reclaimed from the site's previous dwelling now serves as a welcoming compliment to the blackened steel trim. To further connect the indoors with the forest setting, 12-foot glazed panels wrap the main living area in views of the neighboring live oak trees.
