Quite an investment in both time and money. An off beat project that appears to be well executed.

As an instructor in building technology (here in BC) I love all forms of construction and I teach my students about everything from standard wood framing to concrete, metal, rammed earth, etc. Having said that I think it's really important to relate your building to the area you are in. There are usually good practical and aesthetic reasons for this and while I applaud the use of different materials I would love to have seen a little more wood used here (post and beam?) to get those nice big open spaces. Anyway, very creative but maybe the wrong site?
