Things learned from watching “The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes”

“The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes” on Netflix is so wonderful to watch. The hosts, Pierce and Caroline, both educate and wonderfully communicate the feeling of what it’s like to be in the houses. 

Starting this post, I’m on episode 4 and thought it might be good to write down notes to keep in mind about building a house of any kind.

  • Consider the location and environment of the house, be in harmony with it, by respecting materials, landscape lines, and light. 
  • Learn about old local building methods, and see what might be applicable to your design and build. 
  • A small, well-placed window can have a large impact.
  • Outdoor showers are a necessity!
  • Have Pierce and Caroline over for dinner to be thoroughly entertained.
