Design thoughts:

 

  1. Having different ‘zones’ or ‘villages’ ie Creative Vilage (art cabin etc), ‘sports’ zone, ‘animal farm and sanctuary’ where you have the rink, basketball and vballcourts etc.
  2. Having wonderfully tall trees including maple
  3. Solar security gate
  4. Shifting the driveway to add more privacy
  5. Yurt colors and schemes: http://www.exclusivetents.com/  All light look makes it feel bigger http://luxuryyurts.com/
  6. incorporate mosquito repelling plants around pavillion, yurt and fire pit. (catnip and cat grass around cat sanctuary)
  7. use ground mount solar panel system as part of roof for dog kennel or chicken coop or pavilion? any structure really
