The cottage is simple yet thoughtful in its design. "It looks like a monopoly piece, almost like a kid’s drawing," Sundius says. "All of the houses in the neighborhood have a stripped-down Craftsman aesthetic with lap wood siding and flashes of colorful trim. We wanted to play off that iconic profile." Clad with pale green-painted lap wood siding, the home’s appearance is enlivened by a front door and window frames painted a sunshine-yellow tone.
