Outpost by Olson Kundig Architects is an oasis of grandeur living amidst the barren hills of Idaho. Used as an art studio, the tremendous windows and high ceilings open the mind for creativity and inspiration. The exterior is durable against the elements made of block concrete. It sits on the land in a compact package with a modern cube for the living quarters and a peninsula “paradise garden” safely protected within the structured walls that surround the home.
The wide open concept floor plan is furnished with a sprawling sectional and long dining table. There are many, many shelves both high and low, displaying art, books, and other treasures. One of the most stunning features of the home is the ceiling where gigantic supports of steel hoist perfectly exposed wood beams.

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.
