During the past couple of weeks, we’ve shared a video that introduced you to P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home Retreat and another that explained Smith’s approach to sustainability. Today we’re going to take a look at how his Garden Home Retreat manages to maintain an authentic, historic style while using the newest of construction techniques.
The Garden Home Retreat was designed to fit a traditional Greek revival style of architecture. Though it’s only two years old, the home looks right out of the 19th century. Watch the short video above for more, or check out our YouTube channel for other videos from Smith.
