Carmichael Addition

This home is owned by a wonderful family that wanted to consider Mom, Dad, high school daughter, and aging in-laws. Therefore, it involved a massive 1,000 square foot addition, and building it on the side of a hill; as the level ground was all built put. Structural severity was enormous with portions of the foundation on a 4” slab, and the balance on a stair-stepped stem wall to accommodate the hillside. Fourteen foot tall great room ceilings, (2) two stories of living levels with a (10) foot crawl space and a spiral staircase; required great carpentry and perseverance. The west facing elevation was loaded with low-e tinted windows and sliding glass doors that provided an unbelievable view, as well as make this home appear even larger. A synthetic deck with a powder coated decorative guardrail was installed all the way around the home on the hillside for enjoying the interior the exterior ambiance as a family. The interior reveals a large great room with custom coffering, accent paint and Venetian plaster. The first floor offers an engineered pre-finished hand-scraped hickory flooring and the spiral staircase along with the second story studio are adorned with bamboo flooring. The kitchen offers top of the like appliances (commercial style with LED lights), a huge island (stainless farm sink, warming drawer, plus microwave) with brushed nickel standoffs that hold a piece of t1” glass as a sushi-style bar counter. All cabinetry throughout the home is stained frameless maple topped with gorgeous granite and marble. Glass mosaics as the backsplash add the finishing touch to this awesome kitchen, well deserved by a great family.
