RAW STEEL AND A BIT OF SUNSHINE










Putting some of the finishing touches on the front porch. Finally getting to the cladding on the pocket door housing. Decided to stretch some of the reclaimed redwood as trim only and inset panels of raw steel. I have stove blacked them and will give a coat of wax too. Love the color. After we temporarily placed the black roofing felt over the plywood sheathing it was hard to not stick with black.

  5. The house is looking fantastic!!! the raw concrete, the proportions and love the wine room. i could just leave everything behind and move in!!!
    Thank you for your kind comment. i never envisioned that moving a showroom would be as grueling (and so over budget...) now comes the hard task, to make sure that our clients (architects and designers) find their way to us...
