Sitting on a bluff east of the Russian River, this renovated 90 year old farmhouse was designed with Architect Andrew Borges. The home was rewired, plumbed and painted, and retrofitted with custom double hung windows to match the original glazing. New entry doors were installed and stained to a dark barn wood patina. The new kitchen and bathrooms used Carrera marble to create a natural elegance. In keeping with the romantic appeal of hidden spaces, there is even a secret room at the end of the upstairs hall.
Nestled in the hills of Glenn Ellen, this existing residence was rebuilt with an addition, as well the construction of a new guest house. Completely new infrastructure was created, along with renovating the existing pool. The richly painted hard board siding on the exterior kept the traditional look of the original residence, complimented with clear cedar stained trim. The interiors are rich with walnut cabinetry and lightly stained white oak floors.
This home is located in West Sonoma County with a birds eye view of the Ocean. Designed by Architect Guy Ayers, this is an Eichler inspired home abutting open space area. The water source is developed from springs located in a Redwood Grove below the property. Constructed on a steep slope with a pier and grade beam foundation, the structure’s envelope is made of Concrete walls, Hardi Board Siding, and Blomberg Windows. Without any trim using Fry Reglet, the exteriors generate an elegant simplicity.
An existing residence was rebuilt as a collaborative effort with all involved. The Eichler influenced floor plan was embellished with craftsman style flair with rich wood interiors and plans from local Architect Robert Anderson. New windows and doors, heating, plumbing and electrical, along with distributed audio were updated. An extensive array of cabinetry built-ins and wood clad beams contributed to a beautiful rework of this Sonoma County home.
In a historic hillside area south of Glenn Ellen, this project afforded us an opportunity to create some unique and interesting dwellings with Architect/Owner Val Thomas from Seattle, Washington. The location is a picturesque setting of three buildings forming a courtyard. The residence, guest house, and music room, are in a grouping with the pool location overlooking the Valley of the Moon below. The projects were individually constructed over a time period of 10 years, thus giving us a chance to revisit our work from the prior years.
This new residence was constructed in the well known wine country, Alexander Valley in Healdsburg, designed by Andrew Borges of Rohleder Borges Architecture. An old residence was removed and replaced producing a stunning new residence utilizing a blend of Clear Cedar and Smooth Stucco. The outdoor kitchen, lighting, and pathways contributed to a beautiful project that everyone was proud of. A garage with a guest unit sits peacefully next to a pond overlooking vineyards below.
