This innovative home comprises three pods framing a view to the west. The main living quarters, master suite, and guest quarters are in separate buildings connected by an open-air covered arcade. The interplay between indoor and outdoor living makes for a relaxed retirement for the home's owners.

The three separate pods are linked by this open air sheltered arcade.

The pool overlooks the Dry Creek Valley.
