This home designed by Christopher Polly is everything I dream about when I think about a home. The exterior is so unique and interesting with a touch of traditional. The amount of windows and ability to let the outside in is exactly something I dream about in a home. Living somewhere so beautiful I always want to take in as much as of it as possible everyday and I have always thought it would be great to have a house that was built with that idea in mind.

I mean who doesn’t love sleeping with the windows open on a cool summer night? Best sleep of your life right there.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
