Natural Calling

When longtime D.C.-dwellers Diane and Lee Morris found a plot of land in Bluffton, South Carolina, they looked forward to stepping out of the city and into nature. “The tides make a huge impact,” Diane says. “At one point in the day you’re looking at mostly sea grass, and then all of a sudden there’s only water and dolphins and wildlife. It’s like a painting that’s ever changing.” Inspired by their surroundings, the couple decided to build a house in tune with the environment.
