Above is a view into what was the bathroom and dressing room. old farm houseLike an open-air pavilion, the existing roof hovers above the completely open floor – seems like it wants to lift off! In the far end will become the great room – living / dining / kitchen. sonoma additionHere is a look at the beginnings of the master bedroom addition. On the upper right is an attic window that may become a fort for the kids. new additionThe addition will be connected to the existing / old house by a glass hallway, framed here. It forms a small recessed area perfect for plantings. wine country farmA few weeks later, plywood on the framing starts to give shape to the addition – a simple gable structure, which seemed appropriate for this house and its locale. The low gable seen to the right on the old house will be rebuilt to match the pitch of the addition roof. farm house remodelA look from inside at the master bedroom gable wall.  There will be two windows stacked vertically. me in sonomaHere I am standing on a heap of soil outside the house – not my typical site-visit attire!

Stay tuned – more to come!
