Country Home Tour

The Country Cottage, which features covered front and rear porches with charming picket railing, is one of Dave Lawson’s favorite in-house designs.

Built in 2005 this is a lovely variation of the original floor plan. What a pleasure it was to re-visit this lovely country home years after construction was completed.

Thoughtfully set on a hilltop overlooking oak trees and an adorable red barn, this Lawson home turned out truly charming.

Owner, Channa greeted me as I pulled into the drive with a welcoming smile.

The landscape has tastefully been shaped to complement the home and add to the ambiance of country life. Today, maple trees grow tall and a garden sets off to the side of the house overflowing with ripe vegetables and strawberries!

Curious sheep watched as I explored the house and property with Channa listening to her talk of the home building process and what she’s done with her home since. Chickens scattered as we approached the little red barn.

The barn, also built by Lawson Construction seemed to be her favorite part of the tour. Channa told me stories of working with owner Dave Lawson to design the small red barn pictured above. It was designed to specifically meet her needs and the family of sheep pictured above love their home. A unique elephant weathervane sets with pride atop of this charming red barn. Channa smiled as she shared with me the story of how her son had surprised her with the elephant weathervane. The elephant was the last thing we expected and she couldn't be more happy with it! Looking at it with her, I could see the unique beauty and feel fond memory associated with the piece. Turns out an elephant weathervane is perfect in a country California setting.

After taking many photos of Channa's beautiful home and surrounding property Channa insisted it was my turn to have a photo taken. She scooped up one of her lambs and here I am below holding the little guy.
