That tree and that telephone wire are going to have it out one day in the future.

Some more information

Here is some more info on the house and its architect. Before I read that I was going to just comment that this looks to me like a mid-century modern designed and built on a budget. I think that it was quite successful. I guess there are some differing options noted in the link. I like this house, with its new additions, very much.
