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 also realized that I never shared these photos of the dining room and hallway in that same project. So many great details.

I think I was waiting because the owner plans to recover the purple couch in a deep blue to match the windows. Might never happen.

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.

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.
