The challenge to this project was to convert an existing asbestos-shingled shack to a light-filled home with an open floor plan and hillside views. The house was gutted, structurally upgraded, and outfitted with new exterior cladding, hardwood floors, vertical grain douglas fir cabinetry, cast-in-place concrete counters and cove lighting.
A 3-foot vertical module regulates the door and window heights
The garage is clad with the extra panels from the house
The exterior cladding is a Hardi-board rainscreen
Redwood framing and ipe planks replaced a rotting deck
Cove lighting made use of walls thickened by pocket doors
Dark roof beams were painted white to lighten up the space
Small windows were replaced with 10' sliding doors
