    Default Life on Cloud 9

    Pete and Lyn Selig are on Cloud 9—the name the San Antonio entrepreneur and his wife gave to their Hill Country getaway, a three-building compound that celebrates the unspoiled beauty of their 675-acre spread.

    The house that Ted Flato designed for Pete and Lyn Selig consists of three separate buildings, one of which is cantilevered over the water. Two creeks, Flora and Fauna, feed into the 35-foot-deep man-made lake, created in the 1950s, after a seven-year drought. Now it serves as a swimming hole for the Seligs and their guests. The buildings, measuring about 3,000 square feet, including both indoor and outdoor living spaces, occupy a fraction of a ranch that is its own ecosystem, home to smoke and cherry trees as well as less common viburnum and walnut.

    It's nice. I like the very traditional-hill-country exterior, and then the "wow" thing inside. And it looks comfortable and practical, without getting into frumpy.

    Yes I love it too - especially the dining room. But from that first shot it looks like, "hey, half your house in slipping into the lake!". The kitchen and the hallway are lovely too.

    I love it all except the kitchen cabinets, or lack thereof. I'm not organized enough to have stuff on shelves and not have a door to cover it up.
