The project was the
replacement of a turn of the century detached outbuilding with a new two
story office with a full bathroom and a curb-less shower. In addition,
the owners wanted radiant heating on both floors, hardwood flooring,
opening skylights, a full deck, storage space, and lots of natural
light, supplemented by a sophisticated LED lighting system. It was
important that the building retain its original charm on the exterior.
The craftsman motif was carried out in the interior detailing. Cement
shingles, fire sprinkling and gypboard under the shingles satisfied the
Oakland’s requirements for fire protection.
