Rock Reach is one of the best examples of manufactured contemporary custom homes.  For the interior of this home, flat grain amber plywood was used in the cabinetry and wall systems in the living room, dining room, bath and bedrooms. The traditional grain and structure of flat-pressed bamboo offers warmth and contrast to the contemporary lines of this home. Rock Reach represents a long journey from the early days of prefab home construction.
