Hillside Retreat

This week Studio Wildwood completed a small shelter overlooking the Valley of the Moon for a local writer.

While it looks quite imposing standing below and looking up, the shelter only measures eight feet by feet.   The front of the deck cantilevers over a small rock outcropping covered with ferns and the tin roof shelters occupants.

Native sword ferns, maidenhair ferns, and fritillaria surround the deck, providing a sense of tranquility.  Branches from valley oaks twist around the shelter.

The vantage point is great for getting lost in the view or brainstorming a new plot.
