A brick retaining wall in the backyard became the rear wall for the folly, which is tucked into a perennial garden. Gracefully arched rough-sawn cedar columns, a slate roof, and copper finials add to the distinctive look. The steep roofline provides the proper scale for the yard, while the vaulted ceiling within lets hot air rise for comfort.
