Check out this clean, green California house design, the aptly named Caterpillar House designed by Feldman Architecture.
This ranch style home stretches along a grassy hilltop in a linear plan that maximizes the views. And this California house indeed has a deep connection to nature, from the inside out.
Earth excavated to make way for the home was actually used in constructing its walls.
The glass-enclosed main floor invites natural light and views in, while just outside, a sheltered outdoor entertaining area lets the homeowners enjoy the outdoors in any weather.
