              I purchased the lot in 2000. Finished building the home in 2007. My influence to the design, furnishings, and back yard has been my many travels to Thailand. I spent 2 years visiting many different resorts in Thailand. I have tryed to recreate a Thai resort. Everything in the home and exterior is authentic Thai.
