A large granite armour stone retaining wall was built to make a level area for the granite flagstone patio. The living space of the tiny home was doubled with the additon of the patio while providing a beautiful view of the flowing river. Winding stairs lead from the patio to the river. An additonal set of granite stairs were installed on the other side of the property leading down a steep hill to the deeper part of the river. The cottage owner now has the perfect quiet oasis in the forest to escape and enjoy nature with a few close family members or friends.
