We want to share with you a fun project we recently completed in Pleasure Point, Santa Cruz. This was a complete renovation and second story addition to an existing bungalow. The owner had been working with his architect for years to design an addition-remodel that would improve the flow and energy efficiency of the home and add space. After many years of debating the remodel, he chose a design and we started construction. As the construction began, the client really "dove in" and began expanding his simple palette. The home is a reflection of his "modern" aesthetic mixed with his desire to have a warm and inviting home. The project includes many sustainable features, including bamboo flooring from Eco Timber, formaldehyde free cabinetry from Holiday, wool carpets, VOC free paints, recycled glass counter tops from Vetrazzo, high efficiency heating system, and Timbertech decking.
Special Note: This home's kitchen will be featured in the 2012 Kitchen Tour sponsored by the Literacy Program on April 22nd. For additional information, please go to "Upcoming Events" page of our homepage on our website.
Here is the owner's response to "what do you love most about your home?" -- "What I love most? Would that it were that simple--there are so many features about the house I love, from the bamboo floors, to the elevated ceilings, to the modern counter tops, to the master bedroom shower, to the cabinetry, to the fireplaces. I suppose if pressed I would have to say all of it--in short there is no one single feature, but rather the way in which they all fit together in a well designed, thoughtfully built home."
Don't we all wish we felt that way about our homes!! Thank you for sharing and inspiring us!
