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.

The most important component of this project was rearranging things to make the most of various spaces in a small house. There had been several strange additions over the years that made for a lot of wasted space.

Looking east

Looking east in this spacious new kitchen with fir cabinets, vaulted ceiling, corner windows, LED lights,

We added about 65 SF and way more storage. The old kitchen was actually a hallway with constant traffic flow through the work area. Now traffic stays away from the main work area.

Nice Big Pantry

Vaulted ceiling creates room for a large pendant light

We also added an attic access stair for even more storage!

John made it back over to San Francisco with the trim piece and installed it this rainy afternoon. It might be a little too nice.

Matching victorian trim John is working in the shop today setting up his router to replicate Pete’s 100 year old exterior trim. Parts of it is rotten and the painter awaits the replicas so he can finish the job.  I will post soon with pictures of the trim installed.

I still haven’t had a chance to  photograph this whole house remodel in North Berkeley, but I do have a picture of the beautiful custom walnut media cabinet designed by Sarah Deeds and fabricated by Freedman and Chesley Custom Cabinets.

First, a before shot:

Before

Before

The multilevel decks needed replacing, but on the other side of the house was an inspiring curved, streamlined fence:

streamlined, curved fence

We built new decks using Machiche, a more sustainably harvested wood similar to Ipe. We changed the level of the decks to make them more accessible from the living space, eliminated some deck to make room for more garden, and tied the Washington Street side together with a simple clear cedar screen

Here are  Some concept sketches:

We await final carpentry details and the work of Erin and her gardener, but the machiche decks and cedar screen (fabricated by Ron Tostenson and his crew) are looking great!
