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
