We have known this couple for years, become good friends and done several projects for them. They decided since they were in their eighties they should build their last home. Of course they were teased a little bit.
So we came up with a plan for this beautiful, timberframe hybrid home. The exterior is amazing with its massive timber framed entries and drystacked stone work. You access the home on colored and stamped concrete. You enter onto porcelain tile laid in a hopscotch pattern into a warm atmosphere filled with earth toned colors. This home is masterfully finished with custom, knotty alder casework. The drystacked stone fireplace is made complete with a rough sawn beam mantle.
The cabinetry through-out the home is Rustic Beech glazed to match the knotty alder casework. The granite is topped with a mini French mosaic gold travertine. The master shower is full of amenities such as a recessed shower and built in tub. Shower walls, vanity tops and the tub deck are covered in Abalone Trustone for a rich look.
As soon as we had completed this home, we took these clients to the nursery and picked out their trees and purchased a load of greenery and large rock. we took our crew and worked with them side by side landscaping their property. this was truly a treasure for us. these people are more amazing than the home we built for them.
