The whole-house remodel in Laurel Heights is sailing along… Above, a view into the kitchen space with the new angled ceiling we achieved by pushing up into the 30″ of empty attic space above. The new stairs to the lower floor are on the left. A few weeks later and another view into the kitchen and down the hall with new skylight; cabinetry by Cabinets & Beyond. The island will be a dark finish contrasting with the perimeter cabinetry. Windows are from Andersen. Here’s how the fireplace in the living room looks now, actually looks good as just brick! But it will be tiled over soon. The master bathroom looking toward the tub / shower combined area, over the course of a month or so. This was formerly a split bathroom (toilet separated from sink/tub) like many older San Francisco homes have. There’s a new skylight above, and the window at the tub will have a privacy film put on it. The 1×1 mosaic glass tile is Oceanside “Veil”; we chose this as part of a fairly neutral palette in this room, along with 12×24 porcelain floor and wall tiles. This is the walnut vanity cabinet for the master bathroom built by Stephen Day Design. The pullout storage on the end was dreamed up by the homeowner so she can have a place to hide toilet paper rolls facing the toilet, and additional storage facing the sink area! It’s great to have clients who step in to help design their space (often seems to be in the bathroom!).
The floor tile for the powder room is Italian Calacatta marble from Ceramic Tile Design. The pattern came arranged on a backing, and will be trimmed down for installation.The back of the house with the squared-off upper floor with asymmetrical windows in the bedrooms. The lower floor was opened up with french doors and atrium windows over the doors (high ceilings down there!) which will open onto the deck. The basement has a pair of doors into it. More to come!
