Split the volume along the gabled roof ridge to create two wings: the western one is two stories with its lower level partially submerged in the sloping terrain, and the eastern wing that is single-story.

The house has the best vantage points for taking in the rugged landscape, from the kitchen and dining room, they are able to appreciate a set of sawtooth-shaped peaks.
