A Whimsical Retreat

Arroyo Grande, CA

When this lovely couple traveled from Minnesota to the beautiful California central coast, they knew they wanted a vacation retreat that would serve as a place for family fun and future retirement. Entertaining friends and family was important, so it had to be able to comfortably host many visitors. And their love of color and light spawned some very creative building ideas. Thus, a whimsical home was born.
