master suite remodel: cake

I couldn’t help but think that slicing into a house is much like cutting into a cake, the inner layers and color are revealed.  It’s been a while and much progress has on the master suite remodel.  (are we in the final stretch?)  The exterior is starting to shape up, windows installed, new cedar siding at the ‘cut / slice’ area, and Hardie plank siding around the rest of it.   The interior has been sheetrocked (actually painting has started this week but no photos yet) and all windows installed:  why would a view like this be blocked? I found 2 options to put on the 2 left windows up to the same line as the 2 right for waist-level privacy:  either Gila or  3M via Window Solutions.

Holly Park in the distance, and fog creeping in on the left.

The distant view out of the vanity window on the left, and on the right, the more immediate view outside the bedroom window:  well at least the bedroom now has a window = light, ventilation, escape!  View below, from the bathroom. 

Unpainted dormer and windows.  ‘Wet area’ shower / tub have wonderboard and are ready for mud, tile, grout.   –  More to come soon!

open house!

The time-capsule apartments are 99% finished and ready for the open house wine & cheese…. 9/8/10 at 6pm.  Sale listing seen here.  (disclaimer:  I didn’t select the furnishing for ‘staging’ the apartments for sale – I do like the mod one, the other one is … *blecch*)  Here, the main living space of the west side apartments, with white tiled kitchens.  (these photos were taken with my point & shoot – not really portfolio quality – but blog quality!) Check back soon in the Before & After to see how far we came with this.

The 1% includes the glass of the balcony handrails – a nice view and a loong way down!   Below, the east side apartments’ view and kitchen – a mix of blue-grey tiles.  Kitchen donut ‘Tessera’ light fixture by PLC.

And below, a typical bedroom.  Lower windows are frosted so you can walk around bottomless. (they’re also not quite cleaned yet..)  Light fixture by Jonathan Adler.
