boomerang farmhouse update

farmhouse front door

A belated update on our Calistoga ‘boomerang’ (-shaped) farmhouse remodel. During the recent devastating wildfires in this and other areas, our clients were evacuated. With luck, the property was spared as the fire was contained to the west of town.  Our hearts go out to others whose lives were forever changed. wood sidingcedar sidingThe entrance above with sidelights is reflected in a door on the back of the house, creating a see-through effect. This is the transitional ‘knuckle’ of the house, and is clad in wood vs painted board & batten or siding. calistoga farmhouseThese photos are from earlier this year, and much progress has been made since. spray foam insulationWhile the exterior was painted, the interior was insulated. Spray-foam insulation solidified the vaulted ceiling spaces, batt insulation in walls elsewhere. vaulted ceilingFast forward to the walls and ceiling being enclosed! 🙂 The cabinets are seen being installed in this photo; kitchen on the left and bar on the right. The ceiling is painted v-groove 1x6s. The rafters are 4x6s; they are non-structural and were installed below the v-groove boards, which run continuously above the rafters. tongue and groove ceilingexposed raftersOther views in the main great room as walls and ceiling were being painted, and a ‘landlocked’ bathroom with new skylight above the shower. board and batten sidingWe will be sure to keep things updated a little more regularly – stay tuned!

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!
