The builder, Steve Coleman,  just sent me these snapshots of an almost finished 2-story addition in Oakland.  The high window faces east and morning light streams in.

The large room contains kitchen, living room, and dining area.

The roof has a pitch change at the eave (matching existing early 1900’s house) that is carried through to the interior.

This Poets Corner remodel with small addition turned out great.  (Thanks in part to the good taste of the owners and the skill of Coleman Building.) Nancy Kalter came with me to the house warming party and took some house in action shots.  It was afternoon on a very sunny day.

First here is the before and after first floor plan. (Roof deck remodel upstairs (plan not shown)  is big enough for the whole family to sleep out under the stars and also a vegetable garden!)

During a break in the rain today John and the backyard ceramic studio owner made some samples of charred cedar siding.  Very exciting.

The layer of charred wood on the exterior will make the siding more durable, in addition to looking very nice.  Thanks to Christian Palino for the photos.
