Stairway to Living

Various portions of the home—including metal elements like planters and the mailbox—reflect the personality of the owner, a craftsman who fabricated several of the home’s elements, including a majority of the steelwork, himself.

Choosing Wisely

What began as a project to remodel and add to a home with plenty of charm turned into a significant effort after mold was discovered during selective demolition—and the decision was made to fully rebuild without ignoring the established neighborhood character.

 

Get Together

The open floorplan allows the family to stay connected through the kitchen, dining, and living rooms, and also allows for large gatherings of friends.

 

 

True Blue

Beautiful blue cabinetry provides the mostly white colored walls, ceilings, and counters with a fresh pop of color, while natural elements like wood, stone, and the steel staircase built by the owner help to ground the home.

 

Wake Up

The master bathroom features a soaring ceiling with a built in skylight that pushes natural light deep into the bathroom even on the sleepiest of mornings.
