Another referral brought us together with this family who had already formulated their dream home design. They were currently living in the 1940’s house that would need to be demolished making way for their new home. Time to move out. The family was transplanted for a short time, but found their ex-home’s evolution exciting.
Challenges & Points of Interest:
This home’s craftsman style is the only ‘old world’ thing about it. High energy efficiency is evident everywhere from the windows, insulation and AC system to the tankless water heater. No energy-sapping devices allowed. Conversely, old-world artisan skill was necessary to hand-stain the ebony colored hardwood floors. This unforgiving process yielded a stunning backdrop to the family’s casual contemporary furniture.
