Behind the Scenes: Sierra View Project

With stunning views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this custom built home is one of my favorite projects! About ten years ago, I worked with this family to build their guest house knowing that the main home would be remodeled in the coming years. Fast forward a few years and we began working through their design and vision for the main house. We completely demolished their existing home down to one wall of studs and reworked the entire floorplan to suit their family’s needs. Although their four boys are grown, they host the growing families throughout the year and wanted each of them to have a retreat to come home to… sooo, there are three bedroom/bathroom suites on one end of the home, while the fourth family gets the guest house! The master suite and office are on the opposite side with the gathering spaces in between. A large, entertaining kitchen opens into a full-size family room and dining area overlooking the outdoors, including a large loggia with fireplace perfect for roasting marshmallows. Every detail was thoughtfully planned, drawn, specified and installed floor to ceiling– floors, tile, lighting, furniture, fixtures, artwork, accessories… you name it, it happened! I’m excited to share the remaining photos, but for now, you can see some of them here!
