Brighter LightThe kitchen provides plenty of light when fully lit.

Eve's Pocket DoorEve went to several others before realizing I was the one to solve "the pocket door problem." A simple junction box in her closet allowed us to reroute electrical cable out from the door cavity. Carefully installing a level and plumb door was the easy part. Eve demanded a dust-free installation process and we were up for the challenge!

Jack's BathroomJack and I were conservative in designing the interior of his home, but he wanted the lower bathroom to have a little extra flair. Chiaroscuro was the solution, red oxides and green for the contrasting hues.

Removing the Bottom ChordPutting skylights in this kitchen was a huge challenge; the architect said it couldn't be done. Removing the bottom chord of the roof truss needed to be examined using statics analysis, something I was trained for in school. I took my preliminary calculations to Structron Engineering and we arrived at a solution: add joists!

Cedar PlanksNot only did we use cedar, but covered all horizontal surfaces with copper flashing. This will absolutely guarantee this restoration will last for years to come. The stucco was carefully mixed with adhesive additives including glass fiber, and applied during favorable weather conditions to prevent cracking.

Steel FabricationThe pergola was constructed in steel, coated with a rust inhibitor, then wrapped in decorative lumber.

Custom ColumnsThe original builder cut the rafters incorrectly. It was a miracle the roof hadn't already collapsed -but it was only a matter of time. I designed two steel columns to capture the roof load across a larger cross-sectional area of the rafters and to transmit that load across the floor joists without violating allowable stresses.
