Inside the House
The house - built and designed by Arlo - is not only a work of art to look at from the outside, but just as much from the inside. After entering the house through the front door you have the living room and the circular staircase leading to the upper floor to your left. Straight ahead you can see the kitchen and the dining room table. Arlo and Robyn's bedroom and a little office space with a computer are located to your right. The upper floor consists of different small niches, which the four kids used as bedrooms. There is also one room on the second floor that is slightly bigger, nicknamed 'the rock room', where Arlo stores numerous Native American artifacts of the Maidu tribe that he found on the property while farming in the fields. There is one more staircase reaching the third story which only contains one room, this room is used as a small office or guest bedroom.
The two videos above will give you an impression of the layout of the house: The first video (03:15) shows you in detail how colorful, winding, and personalized the rooms are and lets you discover smaller artwork and collectibles; the second video (06:32) gives you a better overview of the layout of the house and the arrangement of the rooms in general. It takes you on a tour though the entire house and consists of only one take.
This cabinet is located next to the kitchen and contains everything from canned vegatables, spices to dried herbs, and even seaweed for making sushi.
There is always something cooking on the stove: rice, mush, or stir-fry (always filling the house with a delicious smell).
The water coming out of the taps (in the kitchen and the bathroom) needs to be filtered before it's drinking water. This is due to the water coming from the ponds and springs located on the property.
The supply cabinet is located on your left, next to the fridge. The path ahead leads to the back door and to the second kitchen where Robyn prepares her homeopathy tinctures and salves.
