Why the Owner Chose Hood River: Rustic modern was his inspiration using salvaged and hard to come by materials, the whole cottage was designed and made by glenn . Its a testament to his wood craft, his love of concrete, to design and to contrast. The modern glass contrasting with the old rough sawn wood creates a hip and cozy ambiance. It is all new construction, people think it s old but really its all new and done in his personal style.
In 2003 he completed the renovated victorian next door , showcasing his variety.
