Nestled in the hill of Apollo Bay in Australia is this gem by Rob Kennon Architects. Steel beams and timber gently dominate the exterior design, topped off with a metal roof.  The view of the bay stretches across the entire structure lined with floor to ceiling windows.  A distinctive stove props itself right in the center of the living space for those chilly nights.  The rear of the home backs up to rolling hills, still a gorgeous view.  All the bedrooms, furnished in peaceful white, have the wall of windows as well.  No matter where you are in the house it gives the feeling that you are surrounded by nature though in the comforts of home.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
