cottage 23: Clarity

Clarity is a wonderfully crafted cottage, located high on a hill overlooking the valley.

The living space features three cozy rooms: a bedroom with queen-sized bed, a full kitchen with hand-crafted cabinetry, and a beautifully tiled full bath. The interior walls are soothing colors, and the entire cottage is made with non-toxic materials.The floor is marmoleum, a soft and durable substance made from recycled paper and resin.

A redwood deck breezeway connects the living space to the large practice area; thus the distractions involving cooking and sleeping are kept to a minimum. The floors of the meditation building are adobe and sealed with environmentally friendly oils.

The main house benefits from solar gain in the winter but avoids direct sunlight in the summer.
