An airy sense of space created by a bank of windows and open plan living room create a wonderful sense of breeziness and lightness in the upper floor of the house on East Conifer Close. Sea Ranch Architect David Moulton AIA was hired to maximize this sense of openness. In a welcoming note, bright turquoise barn doors conceal closets of different heights in the entry.
Contractor: Empire Contracting, Inc.
The downstairs kitchen and a dining area was dominated by a network of darkly-stained, hand-chipped beams and brick-red floor tiles. To bring this space into the framework of the living area above, Sea Ranch Architect David Moultona AIA's design included new windows to replace several outdated stained glass windows and a new picture window to the west. Ikea kitchen cabinets provided a cost-effective solution to achieving a sleek and efficient kitchen layout topped by Organic White Ceasarstone countertops, stainless steel backsplash and chef's style open shelves. A new kitchen peninsula topped with Cherry Butcher Block provides a note of rustic authenticity by incorporating the owner's antique ice chest as an end cabinet.
Throughout the house, new 5-inch wide Armstrong American Scrape Hickory floor planks were installed for sleek and warm, allergen-free living. A Modo chandelier from Roll & Hill and a wood-burning cast-iron wood stove frame the living room and add definition to the seating areas.
In the upstairs half-bath, a new Douglas-Fir countertop is topped by a Scarabeo Geo vessel sink with a Grohe faucet.
