Here are a few before shots. The main impetus for remodel was to get the refrigerator out of the middle of the view to the back yard and to improve the strange, low-ceilinged laundry room addition at the back.

I’ve finally made it back to this Point Richmond project to add some filters and adjust the track lighting.  MUCH better now. I don’t think the owner was using the LED MR16 track fixtures much the way they were.  Now he is in good shape.

It was also nice to see his new art on the white walls! (This one and the one over the couch)  img_4478

Here are some fresh photos of the kitchen and dining area in our Brickyard Landing apartment remodel.

Removing the view-blocking upper cabinets between kitchen and dining area makes a huge difference. Now you can see the bay from the kitchen!

This bedroom was part of a recent full house remodel in Rockridge. I finally had a chance to publish a few photos. Due to the multicolor light, the colors are not perfect in these photos, but hopefully you can get the idea.  Photos are by Nancy Kalter-Dills.

This one shows the pair of colorful stained glass casement windows – A collaboration with Sabina Frank of Berkeley. It also shows the steel bed designed by myself to go with the windows and fabricated by Frank Trousil in Richmond.  Lights are from Metro Lighting in Berkeley and the flooring is ash.

BEDROOM WITH STAINED GLASS

The next few show the custom closet system fabricated by Martin Lee in Oakland.  My favorite part is the picture frames built into the doors. This gives the owner the opportunity to personalize the doors that they look at from the bed every day.

Hard to see in this photo, but Martin created crafty little wooden levers to hold in the picture and the glass on the inside of the door.

This remodel included rearranging the entire floor plan (1055 SF), vaulting the living room ceiling, All new windows, stucco, venitian plaster throughout, insulation, lighting, plumbing, adding a bathroom and pantry, and a curvy concrete deck.  A very cozy and efficient little house for a downsizing couple with kids off in the world.  Ample storage is key to living in a small house. Many different strategies were employed from pantries to closets with barn doors to custom cabinets.
